Support the School of Medicine's Mission to Shape the Future of Healthcare

Posted on October 24, 2023

RaiseSomeL, the University of Louisville’s annual day of giving kicks off tonight, October 24 at 6:02 p.m. For 1,798 minutes, the cardinal community will come together to celebrate its rich history and thriving future by giving back to the university.

This year, the School of Medicine is focused on supporting programs that will continue to move our mission forward in education, research, and clinical care, including: our 23 academic departments, our learners, our leaders, our scientists, and our staff. The support of each of these initiatives ensures our students, faculty, and staff have the resources needed to prepare future physicians and physician scientists to improve the health of our campus, our community, and our commonwealth.

Initiatives like S.M.A.R.T. Staff and FLIGHT give our staff and leaders a place to reflect on experiences, recharge their energy, and renew their commitment to work while increasing diversity amongst one another. These initiatives help faculty and staff feel supported in their roles, thus leading to them providing more support to our students, departments and programs.

Our learners are the reason our school exists – to educate the future generations of medical professionals and scientists. Our MD-PhD program strives to prepare future scientists and physician scientists to advance the human experience. The program allows students to receive a dual program degree from the School of Medicine. During this time, students may elect to use our Academic Support Services, which helps students navigate the challenges that arise throughout their education. The Academic Support Services office provides services to students such as academic coaching, tracking, peer learning programs, and referrals to outside resources to help students feel supported in their journey.

Supporting the School of Medicine not only transforms lives but provides the opportunity for something much larger – to make a positive impact here in our community and our commonwealth. Your contributions are the key to advancing medical care, educating future medical professionals, and supporting key innovations.

“To keep serving our community in the way the School of Medicine has done for more than 185 years, we need your help supporting these critical programs and initiatives,” said interim dean and vice president of academic medical affairs Jeffrey Bumpous, MD. “I challenge you to Raise Some L by joining my dean’s donor match and pledge your support of our learners, leaders, scientists and staff to unlock a $10,000 gift from me and help shape our future.” 

Help us continue our mission and RaiseSomeL with the School of Medicine!

Official giving begins this evening at 6:02 p.m. Please consider giving a gift to the School of Medicine.
