What is it?
Based on the success of the Adopt-a-Med-Student Program, the School launched a similar Adopt-a-PA-Student Program. Since 2011, generous donors to the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences have provided engraved stethoscopes for first-year medical students. Now, donors to the Adopt-a-PA-Student Program can provide professional white coats for second-year physician assistant students who are about to begin their clinical experiences.
The white coats will be formally presented to students during a ceremony. Similar to the Adopt-a-Med-Student Program, we also encourage donors to write letters to the students to be included in their coat pockets. Our goal is to provide a lasting, supportive connection between students and donors.
How do I participate?
Gifts of $100 per student can be:
