This fund helps attract and retain faculty at the Department of Orthopaedics, as well as support the needs of faculty and residents throughout the department.

Established by Dr. James J. White, Dr. Robert Gillespie, Dr. Eugene and June Mindell, and other alumni and friends of UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, this fund is used by the chair of the Department of Orthopaedics to augment the salary line designated by the school for the department’s chair position.

In addition, the fund may support a variety of departmental expenditures, including research support, post-doctoral fellowship stipends, recruitment expenses for new faculty, events for residents in orthopaedic surgery, and equipment.

The Department of Orthopaedics is a nationally ranked program that educates and inspires tomorrow’s leaders in orthopaedic surgery, excels in research innovation, and provides high-caliber health care. With a faculty of dozens of clinicians and researchers, and a long-established history of prestige, we proudly train talented individuals, offering a residency program, subspecialty fellowship training programs and medical education. The department is widely recognized for interdisciplinary research in areas including musculoskeletal conditions and care, concussion, biomechanics, biomaterials and computer-assisted surgery.

In the world of medicine, there is always more that we can do. More physicians we can train. More discoveries we can make. More lives we can save. Now, even as we celebrate all we have recently achieved, we continue to look forward to the possibilities ahead. Bold ambitions require big investments—and generous support. Together, we will continue to build on our shared success and lead the way toward the future of medicine.
