A Message from Andrew T. Filak Jr., MD - Senior Vice President for Health Affairs and Christian R. Holmes Professor and Dean, College of Medicine

As Dean of the College of Medicine and during my 46-year tenure at UC, I have witnessed strong teams of people collaborating to seek and attract the best students in the nation to join us in medical education and graduate research, confidently creating the future through curricular reform that reflects continuous quality improvement.

In our core research facilities, we leverage increasing federal funding support for investigating the next generation of treatments that intentionally brings new discoveries from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside.

In our clinical research enterprise, we seek new ways to scale trials, recruit participants, and work with sponsors and partners to bring to market new therapies that have the potential to eradicate illnesses and promote healthier communities.

And alongside UC Health, we are providing better patient care in larger numbers of adults, which is showing improvement in our rankings as an academic medical center uniquely providing tertiary and quaternary care in our region.

At UC College of Medicine, the people and what they bring in talent, experience, and dedication outweighs the collective sum of all the challenges and threats in the industry. After 205 years of excellence, it is remarkable to imagine that our most profound community impact is yet to come. For my final UC Day of Giving as Christian R. Homes Professor and Dean of the College of Medicine, I ask you to please consider making a gift to UC College of Medicine on UC Day of Giving to support student scholarships and innovations in medical training and research. Every gift makes a difference.

Double your impact with a UC Day of Giving Match 

Gifts to the IvaDean Medical Student Scholarship Fund will be match up to $10,000 by IvaDean Lair.

 


UC and UC Health employees can give via 
payroll deduction today.
