Support Medical Education

Scripps relies on philanthropy to maintain its high standards for the Graduate Medical Education Program, which trains the internists and physician leaders of the future.


"To have a vibrant program that's attracting the best students, we need to pay them. Without philanthropy, there would be no training program."

Paul Teirstein, MD, Medical Director of Prebys Cardiovascular Institute and Director of Interventional Cardiology at Scripps Clinic.

Honor Your Caregiver

Our Honor Your Caregiver Program is a simple way for Scripps patients to recognize their favorite employee and help support our Scripps mission. Now, we've brought the program even closer to home by introducing it in our clinics and outpatient centers.
