The Hoffman Endowed Lectureship in Emergency Medicine Fund at UCLA
Advancing the Professional Growth of Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows
UCLA is one of the world’s leading teaching programs in Emergency Medicine, committed to training outstanding experts and highly ethical professionals. The Hoffman Endowed Lectureship in Emergency Medicine Fund at UCLA brings exceptional specialists to campus to present lectures, discuss topics with residents and faculty, and inspire them to further accomplishments.
Jerry Hoffman came to UCLA in 1974 as a resident in Internal Medicine and became a member of the first graduating class of Emergency Medicine residents in 1979. He joined the faculty that year and devoted 30 years to teaching medical students and fostering academic excellence among UCLA Emergency Medicine residents. A national leader in medical education, Dr. Hoffman established a fund to bring prominent lectures to campus every year to expand learning and mentorship opportunities for residents and faculty. We appreciate your support to maintain this fund in perpetuity and inspire future Emergency Medicine specialists.
The Marshall T. Morgan, M.D. Memorial Scholarship was established to honor former Chief of the UCLA Emergency Medicine Center, Marshall T. Morgan’s legacy of support for Prehospital Care and Emergency Medicine.
Dr. Marshall Morgan was a Professor of Medicine and Chief of Emergency Medicine at UCLA for 34 years, and President of the Los Angeles County Medical Association from 2013-2014. He was recognized by colleagues, staff, and students as an outstanding leader, educator and a compassionate physician who always had a calming voice, inviting smile, gentle demeanor, and an enduring passion for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Throughout his life, Dr. Morgan was committed to helping the underserved and disenfranchised not only through direct patient care, but also by sharing his wisdom and by supporting the education of students, physicians, nurses, and EMS personnel.
The funds from this scholarship will commemorate Dr. Morgan’s commitment to Emergency Medicine residents and the career development of promising Emergency Medicine Services providers. Donations to the scholarship will:
Fund the MTM Humanism award for the graduating senior who embodies the traits as a physician that were so important to Dr. Morgan.
Fund the MTM international and Community service award for residents.
Scholarships for deserving students to attend either the UCLA emergency medical technician (EMT) or paramedic education program.
