School of Medicine Funding Priorities

The Fund for Emory Medicine: Ongoing annual gifts provide critical, flexible support that allows the dean to invest in strategic priorities throughout the year to support medical education, research and patient care. Because they are pooled with many gifts from dedicated alumni and friends, annual gifts have great impact in addressing immediate needs.

Educational Support: Scholarships attract the highest achievers who could not otherwise afford a medical education of Emory’s caliber. Currently many medical students graduate with high debt and choose specialties based on income rather than personal interest. Your support of education through one of our scholarship programs will pave the way for new teachers, medical leaders, and researchers who will train future caregivers, reshape health care policy, and make discoveries that can transform health and healing.

Adopt-a-Doc: With an investment of $5,000 each year for four years, the named Adopt-a-Doc Scholars will support an Emory School of Medicine student throughout his or her education.

Endowed Scholarships: An endowed scholarship is a lasting tribute to the individual for whom it is named and an ongoing source of much-needed funding for Emory medical students. With an investment of $100,000, a named scholarship is guaranteed through our endowment funds, and a major portion of the interest income provides much need tuition relief. The remainder of the interest income is returned to the fund’s corpus to permit the endowment to grow over time.

Department or Division Support: Each of the departments and divisions within Emory School of Medicine has specific initiatives and programs they seek to fund each year. Whether to support education, teaching or research, your gift can make a difference in the lives of our residents, fellows, clinicians, and researchers.

Adopt-a-Resident/Fellow: Depending on the department, your multi-year, annual investment will support an Emory School of Medicine resident or fellow as he or she continues their medical training. Funds are used for research opportunities, the purchase of books and other educational materials, specialty conferences and presentations, and other opportunities.
