Support our medical students on Give Day!


The UC Davis School of Medicine plays a key role in advancing health in Northern California and beyond through the education of a diverse physician workforce, breakthrough research, outstanding patient care and a commitment to community service.


The Dr. William Blaisdell Scholarship at the UC Davis School of Medicine was initiated by UC Davis alumni couple, Dr. Patrick Sullivan '83, MD '87 and Cecelia Lakatos Sullivan '83. It honors Dr. Blaisdell and his impact on surgical education and training for an entire generation of physicians. Pat, also a UC Davis Surgery Residency program alumna, shared "Dr. Blaisdell's innovation as a surgeon and educator influenced and helped shape my approach and practice as a general surgeon."


This Give Day, each gift moves us one step closer to our goal of 25 gifts. Your contribution will help unlock the Sullivan Family challenge, totaling $10,000.


Your gift – no matter the amount – can have a significant impact on our medical students.


Join our generous supporters and give to one of these funds today!
