Emory School of Medicine
Emory School of Medicine’s goal is simple: to make people healthy. Emory physicians train the next generation of doctors, advance and translate discovery to fight disease and improve health, and care for more than four million patients annually. Using one of the most student- and patient-centered curricula in academic medicine, Emory trains one-quarter of all doctors who practice in Georgia. Ranked among the nation’s top 20 medical schools in National Institutes of Health research funding, Emory is a center for groundbreaking research.
Gifts to the School of Medicine support educating students and bring strength to Emory’s research programs. See the message below on this page from Dean Christian Larsen to learn about some of the most important areas for charitable investment in 2014. Your support helps to ensure a healthy future.
Dean's 2014 Priorities
Philanthropic gifts from grateful patients, alumni, and friends are vital to Emory School of Medicine. Dean Christian Larsen's funding priorities for 2014 include:
Investing in programs of distinction. Emory is committed to providing superior care and training the best specialists in the world. Advances in medicine require support. Current top priorities include:
- Heart and vascular health
- Transplant and regenerative medicine
- Child health
- Integrative information technology
Growing student support. Scholarships and fellowships attract the highest achievers who might not otherwise afford a medical education of Emory's caliber. Funding allows medical students the freedom to treat underserved people, explore new treatments, and expand their educational opportunities.
Increasing unrestricted giving. Unrestricted giving allows funds to go to the area of greatest need and provides significant support for students and the faculty who teach them.
