Timothy L. and Beth A. Parker Medical Student Scholarship
Dr. Timothy L. and Beth A. Parker are Des Moines, Iowa, natives who completed their undergraduate degrees at The University of Iowa. Dr. Parker went on to receive his medical degree from the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and then completed a residency in dermatology surgery at Marquette University/Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and a Mohs surgery fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. In 1994, the couple moved to Kansas City, where Dr. Parker established a private practice in dermatology surgery.
During medical school, Dr. Parker relied heavily on student loans and scholarships and was particularly grateful for a loan he received through the state of Iowa for students in need of financial assistance. At the time, he vowed to, one day, return the favor for others like him. That’s why Dr. Parker and his wife established their scholarship fund to help motivated UI medical students complete their educations without incurring heavy financial burdens. The Parkers hope these recipients also will give back to other deserving UI medical students in the future.
Congratulations on receiving the Timothy L. and Beth A. Parker Medical Student Scholarship
