Giving Opportunities

When you make a contribution to SMHS, you help a physician-in-training come closer to her dream of treating underserved children. Or a physician-scientist present his findings on autism and young adulthood. Or a young researcher who is determined to find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS. However you choose to contribute, your support changes lives.

ADOPT-A-DOC WHITE COAT INITIATIVE STUDENT PROFESSIONAL ENRICHMENT

The Adopt-a-Doc Scholarship program provides alumni and friends the opportunity to support a current GW medical student throughout the student’s four years of medical school. Adopt-a-Doc enables tangible connections and facilitates lasting relationships that are important to future physicians, especially as they begin their journeys.

The white coat initiative was established in 2001 by a GW Alumnus who wanted to create a lifelong connection between GW medical and physician assistant students and the GW SMHS alumni.
