The eligibility requirements are that a doctor has obtained at some point a New York State medical license, and has practiced in New York State. A Resident in training may be an exception to the need for medical licensure. Immediate family members of a physician may also be eligible.
How to Apply, and How We Help
An application, which can be obtained from the administrative office, is submitted, and a committee reviews circumstances, financial means, and availability of other resources. If an individual is considered eligible for help from our charitable organization, assistance is provided in the form of a monthly check, with the goal being to help provide for basic living requirements. No re-payment is expected. Beneficiaries are reviewed at intervals, at least once per year, to ascertain changes in circumstances.
