Contribute to the Cause

Southern Nevada faces a physician shortage but with your help, we can change that.  By making a gift to the White Coat Campaign 2022, you will strengthen the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine's mission to educate and train the doctors we need to transform local healthcare.  

Your gift supports two causes...the purchase of 60 white coats for each student starting medical school this Fall and more importantly, the creation of the Class of 2026 Scholarship. When this class becomes established physicians, they will in turn contribute to this fund, providing perpetual financial aid to worthy students.

Scholarships are critical because they attract the best and the brightest students.  The more we attract, the more we can educate and train.  Your gift will make an impact!  It will motivate our scholarship students and future doctors to stay or return to practice in the Las Vegas Valley as a way of giving back to their generous donors.

You can play an important role in this cause by supporting the White Coat Scholarship Campaign 2022.  Every gift counts, no matter the size.  Thank you!




The White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2026 will be held in February 2024 during the 2nd year of medical school.  All donors who provide an email address with their gift will receive an electronic invitation to the ceremony.  If you would like to write a note of support to a Class of 2026 student, please email your message to: development@medicine.unlv.edu. Notes will be placed in the pockets of white coats on the day of the ceremony.
