The William & Steven Putterman Memorial Scholarship
Steven Putterman and his father died in a plane crash on September 1, 1999, while vacationing in Tanzania.
Just a month before his death Steve had accepted a position as the Associate Director for the Worcester Family Medicine Residency Program.
Steve was a bright, energetic and optimistic member of the faculty, a young leader who showed a tremendous potential for the future.
Upon his death his family established a needs-based tuition scholarship which is awarded annually to a deserving medical student who exhibits Steve's passion for medicine and desire to serve all. This is a fitting memorial to the Puttermans, who shared a love of travel and commitment to multi-cultural destinations.
