Stethoscopes for Students

My stethoscope was the first gift I received from the UofL School of Medicine family and the one that has always meant the most to me.

The first time I put my new stethoscope around my neck, I felt like I had finally made it!

The years of hard work and sacrifices had led me to reach my goal of going to medical school, and my very own stethoscope was a testament to that achievement. During my first year of school, my stethoscope was my solace.

A constant reminder that I was meant to be here and one day have the title of a physician.

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 the name of the donors of their stethoscope.

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 2026, the stethoscope purchased is the MDF ProCardial Core™ Titanium Dual Head Adult-Pediatric Stethoscope.
