Stethoscope Program


This program provides each incoming medical student with a stethoscope – purchased by us, the alumni. Stethoscopes, along with a card bearing the donor’s name and class year, will be presented to incoming students during orientation week. Donors and their students then have the opportunity to connect with one another at the WMAA barbecue and again during the Homecoming Reception.


With a gift of $150, you will be sponsoring an incoming student with a stethoscope – or a donation of $500 gifts a stethoscope plus additionally supports the WMAA-sponsored programs of one student for all four years of medical school, so you can follow your student through four years of schooling, match day and graduation! And become members of the Stethoscope Circle by pledging a stethoscope gift annually.


Show our new first-year medical students that the circle of alumni support that surrounds them is strong! The gift is a great way to welcome them into our UW medical family – and to let them know that those who went before them care, believe in their success, and take great pride in the medical profession.

“When I started, I had a stethoscope given to me by my mentor from back home in Green Bay and I still have it.  I still use it and I still think of him every time I pull it out.” - Sam Lubner, MD ’03, Stethoscope Circle Donor

Thank you in advance for your support! Our role as alumni is crucial in helping make a positive difference in the lives of medical students during their education here. Donate online
