School of Medicine

Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support one of these projects today or give to another area that helps the School of Medicine.

 

Medical Alumni Annual Fund

The Medical Alumni Annual Fund (MAAF) supports an ambitious array of programs and resources designed to enrich and expand unique learning experiences for students in the School of Medicine. Contributions to the MAAF have a direct and immediate impact on our students' academic success and professional growth. The first $15,000 in gifts will be matched 1:1! $10,000 will be matched by Medical Alumni Association Board Member John Hilu, M.D. '86, and $5,000 will be matched by James Colville, M.D. '77. 

 

White Coat Sponsor

Support a time-honored tradition by sponsoring an incoming member of the Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Class of 2025 first white coat. Acceptance of a white coat represents the commitment that each physician-in-training makes to practice compassionate, patient-centric medical care. It also serves as a reminder of the ideals that set all Warrior M.D.s apart: the privilege of medical education comes with the responsibility of service to the community. The first $5,000 in gifts will be matched 1:1 by an anonymous member of the Medical Alumni Association Board of Governors. 

Sponsorship Levels: $100 -- 1 White Coat | $300 -- 3 White Coats | $500 -- 5 White Coats | $1,000 -- 10 White Coats


School of Medicine Scholarships

Scholarships play an important role in alleviating the cost of a medical education. Your investment in our talented physicians-in-training is a demonstration of your commitment to the next generation of Warrior M.D.s and will provide financial support to the medical students who need it most.  

 

Charles F. Whitten, M.D. Post Baccalaureate Endowment Fund

After more than 50 years providing premedical academic opportunities for underrepresented and first-generation students, the Post Baccalaureate program has over 400 alumni and a legacy of success. Celebrate Giving Day and Wayne State's commitment to support diversity in the medical field with a gift to the Charles F. Whitten, M.D. Post Baccalaureate Endowment Fund. 

 

Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here. Consider a WSU legacy gift in your estate plan.
