Why Give?

Together we can make Rochester – and the world – ever better. 

How? Giving to the School of Medicine and Dentistry is a great opportunity. Generous gifts from alumni make a Rochester education possible today.  Alumni that came before us helped to shape our experiences at Rochester and now it is our turn!


The future of medicine was redefined when the biopsychosocial model of education was created here. Experiential learning that blends new technologies with traditional educational programs needs your support to be successful.


Excellence in teaching requires the finest health care professionals to be members of the faculty. With health care reform and reduced medical reimbursements on the horizon, we must support our faculty with teaching fellowships.

Our students:
the cream of
the crop

The School of Medicine and Dentistry chooses just five to six percent of its applicants to become students. Accepting these students is just the beginning. Once accepted, we need to compete with other top medical schools. Scholarships help make it possible to bring them to Rochester.

high quality
across all

Many students feel they must choose one of the highest paying specialties to pay off debt from medical school. This creates gaps in the nation’s ability to deliver high quality medicine in all areas and heightens the importance of creating additional scholarships for our students.

There is no better time to raise your hand with your fellow classmates in support of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry – than during your reunion year.
