Transform Health Care with Your Gift Today

There has never been a more promising time to transform human health than now. We are preparing the next generation of health-care professionals, creating new treatments and therapies with innovative medical research, and improving health and saving lives in our communities, and around the globe. Philanthropy — giving by individuals and families, organizations, companies and institutions — fuels our progress. It is crucial for the expansion and acceleration of our impact and critical to the transformation of health and health care across Arizona and beyond.



At your request, your donation can be applied to any
of our subspecialty divisions — or to the department itself.

Targeting Your Gift

While there are many general needs within the UA Department of Medicine that undesignated giving serve to support, we have many ways in which you can specify how your gift is used.

One manner in which you can help us augment our mission of teaching and training of the next generation of physicians and medical researchers in Arizona is by designating your gift to the Bressler-Alpert Society Travel Assistance Fund. This fund—which honors Rubin Bressler, MD, and Joseph Alpert, MD, both former chairs of our department—serves to provide funding that allows Internal Medicine residents and fellows in the UA Department of Medicine at the UA College of Medicine – Tucson attend conferences, seminars and other medical professional events. They may be presenting papers or abstracts of which they were a part, had posters accepted for display, or be participants in various academic competitions. Regardless, your support helps broaden their education beyond the walls of our department, college and university. 

To donate to the fund, use this UA Foundation link!
