College of Medicine Alumni Magazine - Spring/Summer 2019 Adopt-a-Doc: Funding the Future

Madeleine L. Long, MD, MCP '80, and her 'adoptee,' Elizabeth Walton, Drexel Class of 2022

Madeleine L. Long, MD, MCP '80, gave her "adoptee," Elizabeth Walton, a treasured chair bearing the seal of the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania.

Madeleine L. Long, MD, MCP '80, keeps one foot in the present and one in the future. An internist retired from practice, Dr. Long actively pursues her interests in holistic health, nutrition and alternative medicine. She also takes a keen interest in current students at the College of Medicine.

That's why she likes the Adopt-a-Doc concept. It's a unique opportunity to give support to one student through all four years of medical school.

Dr. Long and her student, Elizabeth Walton, Class of 2022, met in person at the White Coat Ceremony. Elizabeth thinks the Adopt-a-Doc program is wonderful. "And I am very lucky to have been paired with Dr. Long."

The idea is simple:

  • Commit $5,000 x 4 years = $20,000
  • One medical student receives a $5,000 scholarship each year

The impact:

  • An immediate benefit to the medical student
  • A chance to know your student and see firsthand the difference your gift will make
