In 2012, the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare awarded a $50,000 grant to the Medical School to help integrate additional elements of compassion-centered care into the medical curriculum. As part of the grant, six medical students were awarded Schwartz fellowships to work with faculty members to design and implement projects related to compassion in medicine.
