College of Medicine Class of 1969 Fund

Fund Purpose
Support award designated by the Medical Class of 1969 for yearly Hippocratic Award.

This fund was established by members of the 1969 medical class to support the yearly Hippocratic Award.

The class of 1969 wanted to recognize and honor those teachers who were recognized as the ideal role model for the class. This class then acquired saplings from a sycamore tree growing on the Greek island of Kos, home of Hippocrates, because legend and history have it that Hippocrates taught while seated underneath the parent tree. Six saplings arrived, and the one planted in front of Shands Hospital has flourished as the list of names on the plaque at its foot has grown.
