Give to Department Initiatives

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are core principles of the Department of Medicine. Gifts to this fund will support activities intentionally designed to promote and enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the department and its 13 divisions. These activities include, but are not limited to, support of pipeline and summer research activities, visiting medical student rotations, resident social medicine activities, honoraria for speakers, and conference attendance and training fees.

Women in Medicine

Due to evolving expectations of their contributions at home and at work, the risk of losing talented women in medicine has never been greater. Donations to this fund support initiatives that help retain these Department of Medicine women, including, but not limited to, educational events, visiting professorships, evidence-based research, leadership development programming, and community building.
