Family and Friends Network

For more than half a century, McGovern Medical School has provided exceptional health sciences education to talented aspiring physicians and researchers.

As a family member or friend of a medical school student, your encouragement and support are key to developing tomorrow’s compassionate, well-trained health care work force. The Family and Friends Network is dedicated to enhancing quality of life for students at McGovern Medical School.

Your generosity to the Family and Friends Network supports our students in many ways—from providing financial aid for those needing assistance with school expenses or unexpected emergencies to enabling social events that allow these hardworking learners to relax and recharge.

Make a gift today and help medical students as they prepare to improve the health of our families, friends, and neighbors. You may be able to double or triple your gift through your employer’s corporate matching program. Check here to see if your company participates.
