Mark Jensen MD’s Future Physicians Scholarship Program
Dr. Mark Jensen MD understands firsthand the financial challenges of getting through college, medical school, and specialized training. Through hard work, diligence and by using scholarship opportunities like this, Dr. Jensen was able to become the reconstructive plastic surgeon he is today. After receiving his education and training from notable institutions such as The Mayo Clinic and then specializing in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jensen envisioned ways that he could give back to the community and assist young students to achieve their dreams of becoming a medical professional.
“I am thrilled when I can help someone live a life they have dreamed about and worked hard for. I really love being a surgeon and I want to give others a better opportunity to pursue their dreams of becoming surgeons and doctors.”Dr. Mark Jensen
