The Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute is an integral part of the UF College of Medicine, one of the top-ranked medical colleges in the nation. The UF College of Medicine strives to improve health care in Florida, our nation and the world through excellence and consistently superior leadership in education, clinical care, education, discovery and service. The faculty and researchers at the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute bring surgical precision, skillful rehabilitation, and highly specialized training and conditioning to people ranging from everyday exercise enthusiasts to high school athletic teams to the Florida Gators. However, these academic and medical professionals’ legacy also extends to the inspired education and exceptional hands-on training they have provided to hundreds of medical students and to the discoveries fostered in laboratories that result in promising new therapies or treatments for a range of orthopaedic diseases or injuries.
Investments in medicine cannot be compromised—whether for education, patient care or research. Private philanthropy provides the resources to go beyond the ordinary and achieve a margin of excellence in every area of our work. From support for our academic leaders to gifts that propel critical research forward to scholarships for promising young physicians, gifts to the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute will make a dramatic difference for Florida tomorrow.
There are many ways to donate, and many areas in need of your generosity. Please review the giving options here and consider how you can make an investment in Florida’s future.
On behalf of everyone at the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine program, thank you for supporting our commitment to developing humanistic, skilled, intellectually disciplines and authoritative medical professionals who are committed to the highest ideals and standards of the professional and who model an exceptional standard of care for those they treat, teach and serve.
