Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine

At the Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine, our students are being prepared through community based medical education to serve communities and close the primary care physician gap in Texas. Data tells us that rural and urban underserved areas experience the most inequitable healthcare.  


Our students are immersed in a highly integrated approach to medical education that includes instruction and training in biomedical, clinical, behavioral and social, health system and population health sciences. Before finishing their medical degree, students are already making tremendous contributions to research and the community. On Giving Day, invest in the next generation of physicians as they shape the future of medicine today for a better tomorrow.



Financial costs are often the deciding factor for medical students when comparing prospective schools. With your support, students can achieve their goal of becoming a doctor without the burden of student loans and the Fertitta Family College of Medicine will remain competitive in attracting the highest-caliber candidates.

Your gift to the Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine Scholarship Fund will:

  • Support a pathway of physicians prepared for the future of healthcare
  • Recruit students interested in medicine with a mission and making a difference in their communities
  • Reduce financial burdens faced upon graduation, as primary care compensation is less than specialty medicine
  • Diversify the primary care physician workforce by making a career in medicine accessible to rural, and urban underserved areas, regardless of financial status

Support the Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine Scholarship Fund, and make a lasting impact today!
