We did it! Thanks to your remarkable generosity, we have surpassed our initial goal by 112% and raised $21,280 to support the UCLA International Medical Graduate Program! We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support you have shown for our crowdfunding campaign.  


We couldn’t have done it without your donations, your social media posts, and your personal outreach to friends and colleagues. The commitment you have shown to our scholars and the communities they serve is awe-inspiring!


Your gift will impact the lives of many as we strive to bring highly-skilled Family Medicine physicians to California’s under-resourced areas. $21,280 will go a long way in supporting exam fees, professional skills coaching, and residency applications for our ambitious scholars. Their road to success is paved with your support.


Nobody says it better than an IMG graduate herself. Your partnership has made stories like these continue to be possible:


“The UCLA IMG program changed my life. It helped me study to pass the boards, get medical experience, and guided me to get into residency. Thanks to the program, I am helping my community by doing what I like the most, and am living my American dream.” – Dr. Carolina Abrew


On behalf of past, current, and future IMG scholars, THANK YOU!

We are thrilled to announce that the first ever crowdfunding campaign for the UCLA International Medical Graduate Program has already met its $10,000 goal with 18 days still left to go! We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for playing a part in this fantastic success. $10,000 will go a long way toward giving these hardworking physicians the support they need to complete their training and begin serving in under-resourced communities.


You have helped one of these full time scholars pay for an expensive licensing exam. You have filled another scholar’s gas tank for their trip to a residency interview. You have inspired them to keep working toward their meaningful goals.


We’re not stopping just yet. With 18 days remaining in our campaign and a committed group of supporters behind us (that’s you!) we have decided to stretch our goal another $5,000!  Your commitment, generosity, and belief in our mission have gotten us this far. Consider sharing this proud accomplishment and our new goal with your friends and family.

Thank you for your partnership. We truly could not do this without you.

We're Already Halfway There!

Wow, what a week! Thank you for your incredible support of the UCLA IMG Program. It’s inspiring to see such an outpouring of generosity – in only 5 days, we have raised over $5,000 from 21 donors! Your contribution plays a critical role in supporting our IMG Scholars through their pre-residency training. With your help, we are bringing bilingual physicians to under-resourced clinics where they can serve the people that need them most. We are very grateful for your belief in our mission.


We just posted a new video about the campaign. Please take a look and consider sharing with your family and friends. Continued outreach will spread awareness about the program and will build upon this campaign’s terrific momentum!
