Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine Fund for Students

July 2020 marked a milestone when, after more than five years of planning, creating and building, the Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine welcomed its inaugural class — the Class of 2024.

July 2021 marks another milestone when the Class of 2025 begins their journey.

Why does this matter? Because UH medical students are cut from a different cloth — passionate about improving health and health care, focused on improving access, and committed to understanding and overcoming barriers to better health and health care for communities in the Greater Houston area and beyond.


We ask you to support UH medical students with a gift today to the Fertitta Family College of Medicine Fund for Students. Some of the important items this fund helps support include:

  • WHITE COATS – An important symbol because it marks the beginning of each medical student's journey to become a physician.
  • WHITE COAT CEREMONY – A celebration for students as a class to receive their white coats and recite the Hippocratic Oath while family and friends witness and cheer for their success.
  • WELLNESS – Supporting medical students’ overall wellbeing with funds for gathering as a group and for meals during exams.
  • ACHIEVEMENT – Celebrating well-earned achievements and marking milestones on their journeys.
