A Conversation with recent Perelman School of Medicine graduate Jason Hurd, M'12
Jason originally hails from Montana and completed his undergraduate studies at Princeton. Jason is emblematic of the brilliant students who graduate every year from Penn Medicine.
The students and faculty of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania are the direct recipients of the generosity of alumni and friends who treasure their medical education and experiences at Penn. As each generation of alumni reflects on the excellence and value of their Penn education, they show their gratitude by generously supporting the School through donations to scholarship funds, academic and clinical programs, and cutting-edge technology.
Graduating medical students, on average, face a debt burden of $100,000. As the cost of medicine continues to soar, gifts that support scholarships help students focus on their studies and allow them to choose a career path based on passion and not economic gain. Penn’s ability to attract the brightest and most talented medical scholars each year depends on its ability to offer financial assistance.
Academic and Clinical
The University of Pennsylvania is home to 12 schools, allowing medical students the unique opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary programs and dual degrees. Penn Medicine is a leader in cutting-edge translational research. Support from alumni and friends is critical to keeping Penn Medicine at the forefront of academic and clinical health-care delivery.
Medical students at Penn are connected to their education 24/7. Using the virtual curriculum, students can log on to their computers anytime, anywhere to access lectures, microbiology slides and presentations as often as they like. Donations help make possible advances in technology that strengthen the knowledge and understanding of the future generation of physicians, teachers and research scientists.
