Stethoscopes for Students

Stethoscopes for Students

The "Stethoscopes for Students" program allows University of Louisville School of Medicine Alumni, Faculty, and Staff to purchase a stethoscope for an incoming medical student.  This stethoscope will be presented to the incoming medical students at their White Coat Ceremony.  When the student opens the stethoscope box, they will find a card with the donors name and contact information.

The "Stethoscopes for Students" program is a great way for the University of Louisville medical community to support the School of Medicine and our current students.  For the Class of 2022, the stethoscope purchased was the Littmann Cardiology IV stethoscope.  Watch the video below to learn more about the advances of this stethoscope.

    • Click the red "Select the fund(s) for your gift" link. This will allow a new screen to pop-up.
