Gifts from alumni and friends of the MU School of Medicine help support students as they prepare to become physicians. Your generous support helps our current students receive white coats, stethoscopes, scholarships and more.
These gifts mean the world to me because it shows the wonderful support system from the alumni. I feel at home at Mizzou! Thank you for helping make my dream of becoming a doctor a reality!

White Coat Support Program
Your gift help will purchase a University of Missouri white coat personalized with the MU School of Medicine logo. First-year medical students will receive their “cloaks of compassion” and pledge to uphold their profession’s highest values of care and compassion at the beginning of their medical school careers.
Stethoscope Program for First-Year Medical Students
A universal symbol of the medical profession, the stethoscope is a tangible representation of a student’s medical journey. An initiative of the Medical Alumni Organization, the Stethoscope Program provides the opportunity to fund an immediate need and connect with students by offering a meaningful gift – a new stethoscope branded with the MU Medicine logo. Each student receives a stethoscope and each box is topped with words of wisdom from that year’s sponsors.
By sponsoring this program, you will become part of the newest Med Zou tradition of supporting medical students and be invited to welcome the new medical students during orientation week at the Stethoscope Breakfast.
Share Words of Wisdom
We invite alumni and faculty to help us welcome our incoming class by sponsoring white coats and stethoscopes, and sharing words of wisdom. Previous students have been touched by the well wishes and support of alumni who participated and encouraged by the knowledge that their future colleagues are invested in their success.
Each white coat and stethoscope will be presented with a list of sponsors and advice. If you would like to share words of wisdom with our students in the Class of 2024, please email Carmen Rowe at RoweC@health.missouri.edu.
