The future of medical education and training would not be possible without generous contributions from previous generations of learners and leaders. You can make a difference in the lives of medical students, future health professionals, residents, and fellows at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Opportunities for Giving
This giving opportunity at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine honors the late John E. Chapman, M.D., and his wife, Judy Jean. The Chapman family fostered a care-centered community for more than 3,000 medical students during Dean Chapman’s quarter century of service at VUSM and VUMC.
The Canby Robinson Society honors the late George Canby Robinson, M.D., who served as dean of VUSM in the 1920s and largely influenced the first iterations of the Medical Center, building the foundation of medical education at Vanderbilt with teaching, patient care, and research all housed in one place. His culture of collaboration created the foundation for the pathbreaking work at VUMC today.
For nearly 20 years, students, residents, and faculty have provided necessary care to Nashville’s underserved, underinsured, and uninsured populations at Shade Tree Clinic, Vanderbilt’s student-run free clinic. Daily operations require support from generous donors.
