Success Stories

Physicians & Staff

A hospital is little more than a shell without its medical team—those dedicated professionals who have devoted their careers to helping others through their medical milestones.

At the RUH Foundation, we celebrate and support their efforts with funding for the medical research, specialist training, professional development, scholarships and state-of-the-art equipment that help them do their jobs.

Physicians who wish to sub-specialize after their Residency training may enter a Fellowship training program. Sub-specialists fill service gaps and advance patient care, research and training at RUH. Similar to Residency training seats, a Fellow cannot fund their Fellowship seat: funding must be provided by a third party.
