A gift to this fund provides support to the department's Post-Sophomore Fellowship program. Medical students who have completed Phase 1 studies and Step 1 Board exams qualify for this rotation, which extends the entire Academic Year, allows Anatomic and Clinical Pathology rotations and research opportunities similar to those of a first year resident.
Financial prizes for best case presentation, highest in service exam score and best manuscript are awarded to residents at the annual graduation dinner. Gifts to this fund promote practice and research excellence by residents.
