FUNDING PRIORITIES

Name the Texas A&M College of Medicine ($75 million)

The College of Medicine, established in 1977 as part of the Teague-Cranston Act, was created in conjunction with existing Veterans Affairs hospitals to meet the needs of the medically underserved. The land-grant service tradition of Texas A&M University is reflected in its priorities. The college seeks a naming donor in support of faculty and staff in our three-fold mission: (1) improve the health of rural populations in Texas and eliminate health disparities (2) collaborate with the College of Engineering and the Health Science Center to develop and implement new technologies to support health care in the 21st century (known as EnMed) and (3) partner with our military in education, care and service.

Support physician engineers through an Engineering Medicine School (EnMed) at Houston Methodist Hospital ($50 million)

EnMed will combine translational research and commercialization opportunities with an innovative medical education model. Your endowed support of $100,000 or more will help the school prepare professionals with the necessary clinical skills to treat patients along with the engineering mindset to rapidly problem solve and innovate.

Retain and recruit world-class faculty ($20 million)

Endowed chairs ($1.5 million), professorships ($1 million) and career development professorships ($500,000) reward career achievements and retain exceptional faculty.

Provide scholarships for veteran medical students and medical students seeking to serve rural populations ($3 million)

Approximately 3.5 percent of Texas A&M College of Medicine students enroll following active duty military service, bringing a unique dynamic to our medical school. While veterans have access to federal aid, this is often not sufficient to meet their needs. These students tend to be older than traditional students and usually have a family to support. Additionally, support is needed for those students who seek to improve the quality and safety of healthcare in rural populations. Endowed or pass-through scholarships to support these students are critical to them earning a medical degree. To support medical students, the college seeks Dean’s Excellence Scholarships. You can establish a scholarship with a $125,000 endowed gift.
