Leadership Giving

The Winternitz Society leadership giving banner

Our seven named levels of participation represent increasing levels of commitment to the School of Medicine and offer a range of opportunities to become involved in our annual giving program. The society is named for Milton C. Winternitz, the legendary dean whose vision nearly a century ago led to the Yale System of medical education, the collaborative, research-focused teaching philosophy that remains a hallmark of YSM. Winternitz Society donors are invited to events on campus or regionally and are recognized appropriately for their leadership giving.
