Stethoscope Medical School Partnership

From an early age, Jason Madachy wanted to become a doctor, remaining dedicated to his goal throughout his academic career by pursuing college credits while in high school, researching and writing biology papers on obscure medical topics and later launching a premedical fraternity during his senior year in college. After graduating from Miami University, Jason was set to attend the Joan C Edwards School of Medicine in Huntington, West Virginia when a tragic accident took his life. Jason would have received his white coat on what would have been his twenty-second birthday, August 9, 2007.

On that day, two local physicians presented Jason’s class with their first stethoscopes. That singular act resonated with Jason’s family and echoed the importance of what a stethoscope means to students and to the practice of medicine itself. Shortly after his passing, The Jason Madachy Foundation was founded, and for well over a decade, the Foundation has presented incoming medical students with a stethoscope engraved with the words, “Excel In Leaving A Mark,” echoing the unique legacy left by Jason on the world.

With a desire to make such a meaningful contribution at the University, the Foundation agrees to make a gift to assist in purchasing stethoscopes for first-year medical students at the University (the “Gift”) with an approximate value of (to be determined) The Gift shall be made as The Jason Madachy Foundation & Your School of Medicine Alumni and Friends Stethoscope Award and a representative from the University or alumni association and the Foundation will present the stethoscopes to the University’s first-year medical students. Thanks to the Donors’ thoughtful philanthropy, students will have a critical tool that will allow them to thrive in their future medical careers.
