Supporting residents and fellows
Residency and fellowship can be some of the most rewarding and stressful years of a new physician's life. On top of the long hours and limited pay, many experience major life milestones such as buying first homes, getting married, or starting families. Most are stretched thin, trying to budget living expenses while making payments on mountains of educational debt. When an unanticipated financial hardship arises, for some it can feel like a tipping point.
Thanks to the generosity of USF Senior Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Education Cuc Mai, MD, FACP, the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine has established a new hardship fund to support residents and fellows facing financial crises. Dr. Mai has personally committed to match the first $7,000 in gifts to this new fund.
Please consider making a monthly, quarterly or one-time gift online to support the USF Health GME Hardship Fund to support physician trainees in need, or contact the Medicine alumni team to discuss other ways you can give.
