Ensuring our Long term Success

Endowed professorships are one of the highest honors the College can bestow on a member of its faculty. They play a critical role in attracting and retaining proven leaders who can drive the UF Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute's missions and high standard for excellence. Income from these funds provides salary, research support and resources for program development that enable educators to pursue projects at the forefront of orthopaedic medicine. Endowed professorships have become essential tools to express faculty members’ importance to the Department and the University.
