Meanwhile, the E. Anne Spitzer, MD Memorial Scholarship, created in 1988, is open to students who graduated from Calvert County High School and are pursuing a medical career. The scholarship was established to encourage Calvert County students seeking careers in the medical field in honor of Dr. Spitzer and is funded by Dr. Spitzer’s friends, family, and the Calvert County Medical Society. Students must be admitted to an accredited medical school at the time of application, with a minimum GPA of 2.5.
