The Marshall T. Morgan, M.D. Memorial Scholarship

The Marshall T. Morgan, M.D. Memorial Scholarship was established to honor former Chief of the UCLA Emergency Medicine Center, Marshall T. Morgan's legacy of support for Prehospital Care and Emergency Medicine.

In support of this fund, the Department will match gifts to a maximum of $40,000


Dr. Marshall Morgan was a Professor of Medicine and Chief of Emergency Medicine at UCLA for 34 years, and President of the Los Angeles County Medical Association from 2013-2014. He was recognized by colleagues, staff, and students as an outstanding leader, educator and a compassionate physician who always had a calming voice, inviting smile, gentle demeanor, and an enduring passion for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Throughout his life, Dr. Morgan was committed to helping the underserved and disenfranchised not only through direct patient care, but also by sharing his wisdom and by supporting the education of students, physicians, nurses, and EMS personnel.

The funds from this scholarship will commemorate Dr. Morgan's commitment to Emergency Medicine residents and the career development of promising Emergency Medicine Services providers. Donations to the scholarship will:

  • Fund the MTM Humanism award for the the graduating senior who embodies the traits as a physician that were so important to Dr. Morgan.
  • Fund the MTM International and Community service award for residents.
  • Support scholarships for deserving students to attend either the UCLA emergency medical technician (EMT) or paramedic education program.
