Stethoscopes for Students


"Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis."

                                                                                                                        -- Sir William Osler, Father of Modern Medicine

Practicing medicine is as much about listening as anything else, and few tools of the trade are more vital than the stethoscope.
It’s as iconic as Sir William Osler himself, who is credited with bringing medical students out of the lecture hall and into

the clinic for bedside training.

It’s an instrument designed to listen to sounds produced within the body, helping physicians diagnose and treat their patients. And, let’s face it, nothing says “Trust me, I’m a doctor” like a stethoscope.

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center understands the importance of exceptional training and valuable tools. That’s why we have partnered with MDF® Instruments for the new Stethoscopes for Students program.

Through the generosity of TTUHSC alumni and friends, incoming medical students will receive customized

lifetime of listening to their patients.

Additionally, MDF will make a donation to
TTUHSC’s Office of Global Health. Their support has allowed our students to donate these instruments in their outreach efforts locally and abroad.

We invite you to invest in the future of sound medicine today by purchasing one or more stethoscopes for our incoming TTUHSC medical students.

Your $200 gift per stethoscope enables us to provide this meaningful tool, connecting physician to aspiring physician
