Giving to Family Medicine

Special Funds

EXCEED

In the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, we strive to excel in offering the highest quality education and training to our students, residents and fellow who will serve as future family practitioners to the state and beyond. But, often we do not have the resources to provide extra touches that can positively influence the educational experience for students and residents – from little things like offering educational travel opportunities for students and residents, to bigger things such as purchasing cutting-edge technology and replacing outdated equipment to enhance their clinical training. 

For this reason, consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Department of Family Medicine Fund. Your generous gift will help meet the needs of the department and support our educational mission.
