Inaugural Stethoscope Program Benefits M1 Students, Connects Alumni

Thanks to the generosity of School of Medicine alumni and friends, every first-year medical student received a stethoscope as part of the School of Medicine’s new M1 Stethoscope Program. The program was established to honor 125 years of the School of Medicine.

Alumni Relations invited alumni and friends to welcome a first-year student to the world of medicine with the gift of a stethoscope. Forty-nine donors participated in the inaugural year of the program. The stethoscope, pen light and a card bearing the donor’s name and class year were presented to each M1 student during the White Coat Ceremony in August.

“The support from our alumni sends a powerful message to our students about what it means to be part of the Creighton community,” said Sarah Rider, MA’10, director of alumni, School of Medicine. “This seemingly small token is a gift with lasting impact.”

“I have been working toward this goal for much of my life, and receiving my first stethoscope from another member of the Creighton family makes it even better,” said first-year medical student Joslynn Hoburg. “Each time that I use it, I will be reminded that I am part of a greater community and tradition.”

Make a gift today to support the M1 Stethoscope Program.
