Orthopaedic Giving

Help Make Great Orthopedic Care at UVA Even Better:

Each year hundreds of patients come to UVA’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery looking for help in an emergency or hope for better quality of life. Patients who receive exceptional care often wonder if there’s a meaningful way to express their gratitude. For alumni of the program, many want to ensure the future success of the department that prepared them for their careers.

Private support is critical to advancing innovation in patient care and education. You can help.

The UVA Orthopedic Research Fund:

Grateful Patient Program

Orthopaedic surgical procedure.

The University of Virginia Orthopedic Research Fund supports our orthopedic surgeon scientists as they perform groundbreaking research, provide the highest quality patient care, and educate tomorrow’s leaders in orthopedic surgery. Your support can:

  • Speed groundbreaking discoveries to prevent and treat challenging orthopedic diseases
  • Quickly move discoveries out of the lab and into the clinic
  • Put more scientists to work on finding cures by establishing professorships to help recruit the most talented physicians and scientists
  • Give our investigators the resources and equipment they need to search for answers

Advancing Education:

Your gift to support education is an investment in the future of healthcare. Endowment gifts are long-term investments aimed at securing the success of the Health System for years to come.

Fellowships & Scholarships

Examining a patient in the orthopaedic clinic.

In the face of rising tuition and fees, scholarships help UVA offer enrollment to qualified students regardless of their financial means. Equally important are graduate fellowships, which help us compete for the best students. A scholarship or fellowship may be endowed and named by the donor with gifts at two levels: $250,000 and $500,000.

Gifts of $2 million or more can endow professorships that enhance the scholarly pursuits of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. By providing salary support, endowed professorships allow UVA to attract gifted teachers and to retain those already on faculty.

Your contribution—no matter its size—can be used where the need is greatest, or you can designate an area that is especially meaningful to you.
