Erin Christine Bosch Memorial Scholarship

Erin Christine Bosch Memorial Scholarship

Erin Christine Bosch was a 2006 graduate of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies at Duquesne University. Sadly, Erin died in Virginia on January 17, 2018 after receiving a heart transplant for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. While enrolled at Duquesne, Erin was the ideal student. She was eager to learn and offered endless encouragement to classmates. Erin enjoyed life and was always smiling despite the rigor of the PA program. Her strong and vibrant personality had a positive effect on her friends, teachers and patients. As a physician assistant, Erin started her career in neurology and after three years joined the medical staff with the Critical Care Service at Inova Fairfax Hospital where she worked for eight years. Erin was a second generation PA and she loved the profession! Her mother, Anita Bosch, was a PA graduate of George Washington University and was very proud of the clinician Erin became. In 2015, Erin married Tommy Fallon and called Arlington, Virginia home. 

Along with Erin's former classmates, the Department of Physician Assistant Studies is proud to establish the Erin Bosch Memorial Scholarship. Erin's family, friends and classmates were quick to fund the scholarship account as a way to memorialize Erin's beautiful life. The scholarship fund will provide medical equipment for students currently enrolled in the 4th year of the program and will provide $100 to students who select cardiology for their elective rotation during the final year of the program.
