Gifts to the Annual Fund support a wide array of events and services for the students, alumni, housestaff and faculty of the UVA School of Medicine, such as:
Financial Assistance: The UVA Medical Alumni Association and Medical School Foundation provides financial assistance to students in a variety of ways. This includes conference expense reimbursement that helps students attend medical conferences and gain valuable career experience. In addition, the Global Health Initiative offers financial support to students participating in electives which provide service abroad to communities in need. We also provide student scholarships and interest-free emergency loans to students.
Programs and Events: Thanks to the Annual Fund, incoming students now receive a stethoscope as a gift from alumni during the annual Brodie Gateway Dinner. Alumni support also makes more than 50 events possible for students each year. They include: the White Coat Ceremony (sponsored by the Class of 1965 and presented by the UVA Medical Alumni Association), Match Day, Graduation Reception, Family Day, Money Talks financial planning seminars, and Lipscomb Lectureship, just to name a few. Visit our Events page to see what events are coming up.
News and Information: The semi-annual University of Virginia School of Medicine Virginia Medicine magazine is available online and in print, and its companion e-newsletter offers the latest news every other month.
Every gift counts. The Annual Fund is cumulative, so every dollar of support adds up to meaningful events, services, and scholarships. Will you make a gift now?
