Denis R. Oliver Physician Assistant Scholarship
This fund was established in 2006 by Dr. Robert and Mrs. Jean Kendall in honor of Jean’s brother, Dr. Denis R. Oliver, to support one or more annual merit-based scholarships to deserving students in the University of Iowa Physician Assistant Program.
Dr. Denis Oliver, (1971 Ph.D. in Zoology), devoted nearly 30 years of his academic career to the Physician Assistant Program at Iowa. From the program’s inception in 1972 and into his retirement, Dr. Oliver continues to be greatly admired and respected for his career as a teacher, researcher, and leader in the UI’s Physician Assistant Program, having directed it for more than 20 years.
Dr. Oliver passed away in 2010. Many of his former students, colleagues, and loyal friends have also contributed to the Denis R. Oliver Physician Assistant Scholarship Fund as an expression of their admiration and deep appreciation for his mentorship and friendship.
Congratulations on receiving the Denis R. Oliver Physician Assistant Scholarship
