In the fall of 2016, Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) embarked on a historic transformation, made possible by a $15 million gift from the Jaharis Family Foundation. Among other things, this gift will fund a major renovation and expansion of the gross anatomy lab on our health sciences campus in the heart of downtown Boston.
As generations of Tufts-trained doctors know, gross anatomy is where medical education truly begins. It's where we encounter our first patients, learn how to work as a team, hone our observational skills, and develop a spirit of inquiry that we will use throughout our careers.
We are honored by the generosity and vision of the Jaharis Family and thrilled that their gift has created an opportunity for all of us to become partners in this project through the Clinical Skills and Medical Education Technology Fund.
The name is long, but the aim is simple, and powerful: Your gifts to the Clinical Skills and Medical Education Technology Fund will equip the new anatomy lab, along with our Clinical Skills and Simulation Center, with state-of-the-art tools, resources, and faculty support – everything we need to turn these beautifully renovated spaces into a medical training environment of the highest caliber.
I hope you will read more in these pages about this exciting effort and how you can be part of it. Together we can shape a wonderful future for the medical school and a better world through the practice of medicine.
