12th Annual White Coats-4-Care

August 2 @ 6:00 pm

Civic and business leaders, healthcare professionals and community advocates are invited to the 12th Annual White Coats-4-Care (WC4C) Scholarship Donor Reception that will welcome and “dress and equip” the incoming Class of 2026 of Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine (CoM). WC4C funds help CoM attract, recruit, train and educate the next generation of humanistic clinicians and scientists – doctors who care and cure. With the average cost of a medical education reaching $250,000 in-state to $400,000 out-of-state, 85% of CoM talented students require financial assistance. Scholarship funds provide need-based financial support for its gifted students who do not have the financial means to pay full tuition and provide merit-based support to recognize their achievements. Most importantly, scholarships give the medical students the ability to choose a career path in primary care such as internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine for which salaries are lower than other medical specialties, but the impact on our community is great.
