An endowed chair position is sponsored by an endowment fund donated specifically for that purpose. Donors who generously endow chairs recognize that they are not only ensuring academic excellence in teaching and research today, but safeguarding education and medical discoveries for the future. The UMKC School of Medicine is proud to have 22 endowed chairs and is extremely grateful to our benefactors for their generous support.
