The Medical Emeritus Faculty Society provides a collegial forum for medical emeritus faculty and retired alumni to enjoy intellectual and social interests in connection with the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the Health Sciences schools.
The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences' DoctHERS is a network of female physicians, scientists, faculty, health care professionals, residents and students who address current issues in the medical and scientific fields in order to foster advancement, mentorship and equal opportunities for future generations of women in medicine and science.
The Global Medicine Program at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences inspires, educates and equips students, residents and faculty to provide much-needed health care in medically underserved communities, locally and globally.
The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the Medical Alumni Association depend on alumni volunteers to connect with students and recent graduates across the country. We appreciate your willingness to contribute to the success of medical students and fellow alumni.
Our goal is to help resolve the financial issues that our students face. Scholarship assistance is crucial for our medical students, who, on average, incur over $180,000 in debt by graduation. Debt of this magnitude discourages many talented and diverse students from pursuing a career in medicine. It also influences their choices about what field to specialize in and where they ultimately choose to practice. With increased scholarship support, more students may decide to become primary care physicians or to practice in underserved areas.
