Transforming Good Intentions Into Good Medicine
The College of Medicine will join the University of Houston as its 15th academic college, admitting 30 students in its inaugural class in 2020. Our goal is for at least 50 percent of each graduating class to practice primary care specialties — a crucial point of difference that will truly set the College apart from its local and national counterparts.
Whether you serve on a volunteer board, become a member of one of our Donor Societies, join via life membership or engage in student philanthropy, there are many ways to get involved at UH! Every time you give of your time, talent or resources, you increase opportunities for today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders.
OPPORTUNITY DEFINES A UH EDUCATION
When you invest in UH, you enable opportunity to take root and thrive. It grows first for our students, who bring a special grit and determination to their studies, and next for our schools, colleges, faculty, and region.
