In 1973 the wives of the new faculty formed a group dedicated to fostering a sense of community among its growing membership and to finding ways to assist medical students. The Faculty Wives and Women Faculty established the Doris Simon Scholarship Fund to ensure that medical students with true financial need are able to continue the medical education and training required of those who chose to serve our communities. The Organization also makes an award to a medical student to defray travel costs during residency interview season in the 4th year of medical school.
Camaraderie is an essential goal of our organization and monthly events are planned featuring a variety of activities. Please see the links below to view the monthly newsletter for more information.

Supporting our Medical Students
Without private support, many students are challenged to balance the time commitment to their studies with the responsibilities of personal and in many cases, family needs. By supporting the Faculty Wives and Women Faculty Doris Simon Scholarship Fund, you can help ensure that medical students with true financial need are able to continue the medical education and training required of those who chose to serve our communities. The Organization also makes an award to a medical student to defray travel costs during residency interview season in the 4th year of medical school.
Membership is open to all UT Medical School faculty wives, all women faculty, and friends. Annual dues are $35 payable to the UT Medical School / Organization of Faculty Wives and Women Faculty. Please call Gerlind Wolinsky for more information at (713) 668-4554.
