Your gift will help the Department of Surgery meet its goals in treatment, research and education. Our physicians provide state-of-the-art surgical care for adult and pediatric patients across the state and conduct innovative research that strives to understand and treat a variety of conditions and life-threatening illnesses. We consider our supporters our partners in this work.

Gifts can be made to the Department of Surgery’s Division of General Surgery Research and Development Fund. Your generous contribution toward this fund provides vital fiscal support for advancing new surgical research priorities and initiatives within the University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery and across its seven divisions. Donors can direct their contributions to individual surgeons, areas of research, or in memory or honor of an individual.

Named chairs and professorships help us attract and retain the very highest quality scholars. The income from these funds allow our faculty to pursue new research ideas and strengthen clinical programs. View a list of our current named chairs and professorships.
