Endowed Chairs and Professorships
- Exemplified by world-class scholarship and instruction, endowed chairs and professorships are among the most significant awards conferred to our Department of Urology faculty. Philanthropic gifts that create income from these funds provides support for resources, equipment and salary support for program development that enable our physician-scientists to pursue projects at the forefront of medical discovery. Because they foster exceptional opportunities for research as well as teaching, endowed positions are fundamental to the University of Florida’s mission. As permanent funds, they are critical to the University because they generate predictable, growing streams of income in perpetuity to support some of the institution’s brightest and most promising faculty.
- Fellowships are forms of aid that help pay for a physician-scientist to further his or her education in a urology subspecialty area such as urologic oncology or minimally invasive urologic surgery. Philanthropic gifts that create income from these funds help us establish fellowship programs in which we recruit elite applicants with special academic qualifications and talent. As permanent funds, fellowships are critical to the University of Florida because they generate predictable, growing streams of income in perpetuity to support advanced post-residency training.
