Dr. Ruth Gottesman Donates $1 Billion To Medical School, All Current And Future Students To Get Free Tuition

404

In a remarkable act of kindness, Dr. Ruth Gottesman, a 93-year-old widow of a Wall Street financier, donated $1 billion to Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx. This huge gift, the largest ever to a medical school, will cover tuition for all future students. Ruth’s late husband, David Gottesman, left her a substantial stock portfolio, which she decided to use to help students pursue their medical dreams without worrying about tuition fees.

Her donation aims to make medical education accessible to everyone, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. This generous gesture reflects Ruth’s commitment to ensuring that talent, not money, determines who can become a doctor.

Her close bond with Dr. Philip Ozuah, the hospital’s CEO, played a big role in making this happen. Ruth hopes her late husband will be proud of her decision. This remarkable gift ensures that Albert Einstein College of Medicine can continue its mission of excellence and service for years to come.
