Invest in Our Future Physicians

In 1971, 24 medical students took a chance on the brand new USF College of Medicine. Since then, we have graduated 50 classes of new physicians dedicated to the health of their communities and patients. 

This summer, the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine Class of 2028 will embark on a challenging journey to become the next generation of top-notch physicians. As they step into the future of medicine, many will face significant financial burdens.

Today, we invite you to invest in these students' dreams and celebrate 50 years of USF white coats by making a gift to sponsor the first white coat of a new medical student. Together, we can empower these students to reach their fullest potential and shape a future where compassionate and skilled physicians thrive.

What Your Generosity Will Do

“Having my white coat sponsored showed me that I have a community of people who believe in me and will help me see this through. The support I have received has been overwhelming. I am confident that with the support of my USF community, I will become an exemplary physician and have the opportunity to provide that same support to future USF students.” — Abrianne Joseph, second-year medical student

Through the generosity of donors like you, our incoming medical students are gifted with their first white coat, the creation of their class scholarship fund and encouraging notes from alumni, family, friends and the community. This support not only aids their immediate financial needs but also fosters a nurturing environment for their entire medical school journey.

Funds are allocated between the Medicine Class of 2028’s operating and endowed scholarship funds, ensuring immediate impact and long-term growth. This will allow the scholarship funds to be awarded to members of the class while they are at USF, and also allow it to grow and be awarded to future decades of students.

USF Medicine alumni may choose to designate half of their gift to their class scholarship or department by contacting Jules Teichert at 978-494-2966 or jteichert@usf.edu.

USF Faculty and Staff: You can give online through this site or complete this payroll deduction form (select fund #256158, MCOM Class of 2028 Scholarship) and have your gift count toward the USF Faculty & Staff Campaign.

*White Coat sponsors who make a gift of $250 or higher may send a special note to be provided to their sponsored student. Sponsors who give at the dean's level of $2,500 will be invited to a special event hosted by Dr. Charles Lockwood, USF Health Executive Vice President and Morsani College of Medicine Dean, in October.

**Gifts made by Aug. 23 will be acknowledged in the White Coat Ceremony program.

Special thanks to our White Coat Ceremony Sponsor: Tampa General Hospital.
