Black Tie White Coat Gala and Alumni Weekend

2018 USC School of Medicine Alumni Weekend Event Guide

Purchase Tickets and Donate

The Black Tie White Coat Gala is a longstanding, highly respected fundraising initiative to foster medical education for aspiring doctors and medical professionals, while also helping to support prevalent health care needs within the Columbia community.

In 2002, the compassion of the School of Medicine student body was showcased when fourth year medical students identified a need for providing health care to our Midlands’ citizens. They also recognized the inflating cost of medical education and wanted to ensure students following in their footsteps had the necessary financial support to pursue the dream of becoming a physician. On a mission to help, the inaugural Black Tie White Coat Gala emerged and a tradition was born.

For the past 16 years, fourth year medical students have teamed up with the Alumni Association to jointly organize the School’s signature fundraiser. With more than $750,000 generated to date, the Black Tie White Coat Gala continues to support the mission of the 2002 class of providing financial assistance to the Free Medical Clinic of Columbia and aspiring physicians through the Alumni Scholarship Fund.

The Class of 2018 and the Alumni Association cordially invite you to attend and support this year’s Gala.
