Transforming Medical Education

Preparing the Physicians of Tomorrow

The UVA School of Medicine has a well-deserved reputation of graduating compassionate, thoughtful doctors who become leaders in their field, improving patient care and expanding medical knowledge.

Recently, governmental support for education has decreased while more expensive, faculty-intensive teaching methods have been mandated. Without scholarship support, many students would find medical education too great a cost to bear.

A gift to support medical scholarships is an investment in the future of healthcare.


Gifts of $250,000 are used to create named, endowed scholarship funds. These funds help us recruit and retain the brightest students year after year, regardless of their financial backgrounds. Learn more.

Professorships & Faculty Support

Gifts of $2 million or more are used to create named, endowed professorships in the School of Medicine. Professorships help UVA attract and retain outstanding faculty. Further, generous start-up funding helps ensure faculty have the resources they need to advance groundbreaking research and realize their academic aspirations. Professorships may be named for or by the donor. Learn more.

Unrestricted Support

Unrestricted gifts are more important than ever in meeting urgent and emerging School of Medicine needs as they arise. Unrestricted funds help us implement our most ambitious visions and plan for the future. Learn more.
