The University of Maryland School of Medicine excels because of the leadership of our faculty and staff. Every day, our faculty and staff inspire the finest students and train them to become future physicians and medical professionals who will transcend the boundaries of medicine on their own.
There is no better incentive to attract and retain the best scholars, researchers, and teachers than an endowed professorship. The School of Medicine has more than 70 endowed chairs and professorships. More than just conferring honor, endowed professorships reward and preserve our outstanding faculty by providing each member with critical resources needed to launch, sustain, and expand promising research and innovative clinical initiatives.
