$1.5 million Kleberg Foundation gift bolsters RAHC clinical research

August 2004

A $1.5 million gift from The Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg, Jr. Foundation has helped make it possible for internal medicine residents at the Health Science Centerís Regional Academic Health Center (RAHC) Medical Education Division to begin presenting clinical research at national and regional meetings.

The Kleberg Foundation last year donated the funding to establish the Kleberg Medical Scholars Program to attract the best and brightest medical residents to the RAHC. Seven RAHC residents are conducting clinical research projects supported by $10,000 stipends from the Kleberg Medical Scholars Program. Two Kleberg Scholars made presentations at the American College of Physicians regional associates meeting in San Antonio. Another presented an abstract at the Society of Hospital Medicineís Seventh Annual Meeting in New Orleans in April.

The Kleberg Medical Scholars presented their findings in June at the RAHC. The internal medicine program was inaugurated in July 2002 with eight residents. The program now has 12 residents, including the seven Kleberg Scholars.
