The University of Missouri School of Medicine’s Class of 1999 raised more than $27,000 in memory of their classmate, Chris Bosche. Bosche aided in the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero on Sept. 11, 2001, and later developed a synovial sarcoma of the lung, a rare cancer that has been associated with 9/11 responders.
Bosche died on Sept. 12, 2017.
“Chris meant a lot to a lot of people,” said Cynthia Hayes, MD ’99. “Even while he was still in medical school, he volunteered his time. He was quiet and self-assured. Even when he was really sick, he could still make you laugh.”
The funds raised will be directed to the PBL-25 Scholarship Fund — a curriculum the class of ’99 was one of the first to complete.
In PBL, students work in small groups to learn from real clinical cases rather than listening to traditional lectures. The curriculum has helped MU medical students consistently score higher than the national average on board scores.
