Giving Opportunities in the Department of Medicine

The generosity and dedication of our donors enables the Department of Medicine to improve patient care, provide leadership in medical education, and make exciting strides in many areas of research. As the largest of the 23 departments in the School of Medicine, we now have almost 850 regular faculty members (including 132 PhDs and 31 M.D./PhDs), 188 residents, and 173 fellows (clinical and research). Seven of our divisions are nationally ranked by the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Guide. 

According to Department Chair, David Schwartz, M.D., “I believe that medicine is at one of those inflection points, where we have the opportunity to take a great leap forward. That great leap will bring together molecular science and genetics, basic research and clinical practice, and the latest technologies for collecting and analyzing patient information in order to move us toward an era of more targeted, personalized medicine. That can only be done at large medical centers with collaborative, forward-thinking leaders who are willing to take risks and invest in paradigm-shifting ideas. This is that place.”

Your gift to the Department of Medicine will allow us to continue our commitment to innovation and excellence.

For the opportunity to contribute to the Department, please consider a gift to our Department of Medicine Gift Fund, or view the many other giving opportunities within the Department of Medicine.



We depend on our friends - philanthropic individuals and foundations - to aid us in our commitment to biomedical research. We gratefully acknowledge the many donors who have contributed more than $64,300,000 for the 33 Endowed Chairs that reside in the Department of Medicine. In addition, Department of Medicine faculty hold 7 Endowed Chair positions in which the endowment is managed outside the Department (Cancer Center, Webb-Waring Institute, Colorado Prevention Center), enabling us to pursue new understanding and treatment of diseases that are afflicting millions of Americans.
