Since the establishment of the Department of Surgery in 1939, it has contributed greatly to the Emory University School of Medicine's position as one of the nation's finest institutions for education, biomedical research and patient care. Emory Surgery conducts cutting edge research; treats a diverse array of patients, often offering ground-breaking procedures that are unavailable anywhere else in Georgia; and trains approximately 70 residents a year in several outstanding facilities. Contributions from organizations and private individuals have been essential to these endeavors, assisting in building and sustaining an infrastructure that has allowed us to continue to develop and advance.
As academic medical institutions strive to remain stable and afloat in a volatile healthcare and economic climate, gifts from organizations and private individuals are essential. Your gift can be designated for any one of a variety of purposes, such as to fund an endowed chair, support a faculty member or research team's investigations, or fund a component of our multi-specialty training programs.
Investing in Emory Surgery has never been easier. You may use a credit card, check, money order, electronic funds transfer, or even give appreciated stock or other real property. You also may invest in the Department with a bequest or life income gift, which can provide for you and your family, create tax benefits, and leave an important legacy for education, research, patient care, or community service at Emory.
By giving, you can become an integral part of our ongoing effort to help define the future of healthcare in this country and abroad and to train the surgeons of tomorrow. To make a gift, please contact James Owen, III, Director of Development for the Department of Surgery, via email or 404.778.5429.
