Dr. Frederick Rimmele Memorial Scholarship

 

This scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Frederick Rimmele, son of NJPEC past president Frederick C. Rimmele, Jr. and Marilyn Rimmele. Dr. Rimmele was a victim of the World Trade Center atrocity on September 11, 2001. The scholarship was established in 2001 and is intended to be awarded annually for as long as the NJPEC is in existence.

 

Frederick Charles Rimmele III, M.D.



Educating Tomorrow's Packaging Executives

Fred Rimmele received his M.D. from Duke University Medical College in 1994 and completed his residency training in Family Medicine from the Maine-Dartmouth Family Practice Residency in 1997.  Starting at the Foxboro area Health Center, he soon moved to Marblehead where he joined the faculty team of the Family Practice Residency at Beverly Hospital in August 1998.


At Beverly, Fred advanced swiftly to become the Medical Director of the Family Practice Health Center. When it became clear that the Residency training program would close in 2002, Fred was the catalyst in the plan to transform the Family Practice Center into a physician owned group practice.  Like everything else he did in life, his mission was clear and unwavering.  The newfound practice would serve to provide the same quality of care that the Family Practice Health Center had done and he would be part of it.


Fred never lived to see his project come to life.  On his way to California for a Family Medicine conference, he became one of the victims on board United Airlines flight 175 in the terrible tragedy of September 11.  


With his eye for detail, Fred had listed out his vision and plan for the practice very early in the transition.  Today, this practice, which is dedicated in his memory, will strive to achieve his vision and standard of care, so that patients who knew him could say: "You did that just the same way as Dr. Rimmele would have done for me."  That, perhaps, is the best remembrance we can have of him to cherish his memory every day.


Eligibility:

 

- Natural or legally adopted child of an NJPEC member in good standing.

- College students who have completed at least two full semesters in a bachelor's degree program at a legally accredited school.  Applicants are not limited to packaging students.

- Achievement of a minimum GPA of 3.0 or a B average; a transcript must be provided.

 

Requirements:

 

- Each applicant must submit an application with a copy of his/her college transcript.

 

Selection Criteria:

 

- The scholarship winner will be randomly drawn in a lottery of all eligible applicants.

 

Note:  Applicants may apply in subsequent years
