The WMed Fund is a convenient one-step way for alumni, donors, and friends to make financial contributions to support learner success at the medical school. The WMed Fund allows donors to support the mission of the medical school and the educational needs of our learners - medical students, graduate students, and resident physicians. Every gift makes a difference, no matter the size of the gift.
