What will your gift in support of the Dr. P.K. Vyas $1 Million Challenge enable us to do?
- Put the final, distinguishing details on the state-of-the-art building that will be crucial in drawing bright medical students and talented faculty to Campbell
- Furnish our medical school with the cutting-edge equipment and technology needed for simulation and anatomy labs, ensuring our physical space will be a true learning laboratory for our students
- Graduate our first 162 doctors in 2017 and 600 by 2021, many of whom will practice medicine in rural regions of North Carolina that lack in health care providers
"As the opening of Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine approaches, it’s imperative that the medical school continues to receive financial support, ensuring that faculty and students will get the resources they need to fulfill the university's mission to address the shortage of primary care physicians in North Carolina. I hope others will join me in supporting Campbell in this critical endeavor."
