Textbooks, White Coats, and more!

The Medical Alumni Foundation raises funds from alumni, parents and friends through our annual campaign to provide medical students with specific gifts in each year of medical school.  The Medical Alumni staff and student presidents meet annually to discuss the usefulness and timeliness of these gifts, and make the appropriate changes.

White Coats:  A white coat provided to first-year students during the White Coat Ceremony and a new white coat to third-year students to begin their clinical rotations.

Textbooks:  The Netter's Atlas of the Human Anatomy to begin their Anatomy Lab training and a copy of the First Aid for the USMLE Step 1 Study Guide, a necessary tool to prepare for the USMLE.

More:  A white coat clipboard, extremely helpful during clinical rotations and a Pre-Match or a Pre-Commencement celebration for fourth-year medical students.
