"Promoting excellence in medical education."
The Walter E. Macpherson Society fosters and strengthens unity and loyalty among School of Medicine alumni, faculty, students and friends of Loma Linda University through a common interest and shared financial responsibility.
The society encourages the advancement of the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs through financial support to the School of Medicine. The financial support by members has endowed the society with the ability to actively support numerous projects that promote excellence in education and research – benefiting students and the institution.
Research is also an important component of medical education, and the society has embraced this through scholarships, awards and special projects.
