By supporting the establishment of an MGH Endowed Chair, you are becoming part of the permanent fabric of this institution, providing our most gifted and prolific clinician-scientists with a reservoir of support for their pioneering work during the most productive period of their distinguished careers.
“Endowed chairs represent an important resource to sustain innovative teaching and groundbreaking research, not only in the present, but also for future generations.
They are intended for prominent members of the faculty and are truly an honor. But the benefits for the incumbent, the hospital and the advancement of medicine extend beyond the honorific.
An endowed chair gives the incumbent the flexibility to pursue his or her research when financial resources for pioneering investigation are limited.”
– Peter L. Slavin, MD, President, Massachusetts General Hospital
An MGH Endowed Chair is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a physician at Mass General. It gives the hospital and donors the chance to honor outstanding individuals who have compiled exceptional records in the clinic, in research or in hospital-based education.
Recognize Exceptional Care
An MGH Chair is a wonderful way to recognize a physician’s exceptional leadership and numerous contributions to the hospital; to show admiration, respect and appreciation; and to support a specialty program’s efforts going forward.
A chair can be named for the lead donor and will serve as a sustainable resource for the incumbent throughout his or her career at Mass General.
The chair will help advance innovative research and compassionate care for patients and ensure that the department benefiting from the chair is able to attract the finest specialists to the program, all while preserving Mass General’s tradition of excellence.
