Welcome to the Lipscomb - Chapman Alumni Society

The Lipscomb - Chapman Alumni Society is an organization formed in honor of the founder of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dr. Paul Lipscomb. Every resident, fellow, intern, and faculty trained at UC Davis is eligible to join. Please visit the Lipscomb Alumni Society to update your information and get involved.

Lipscomb - Chapman Alumni Fund

Your support and advocacy for the transformative power of training in orthopaedic surgery at UC Davis is vital as we continue to provide the highest quality resident education in the country. We ask that all Lipscomb Alumni consider donating to the Lipscomb Alumni Fund. This newly established fund allows all alumni the ability to assist in supporting the needs of current residents and fellows training to become the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons.

Get connected. Get involved.

Alumni involvement in the department of Orthopaedic Surgery is an essential part of our present and future. You connect us to our past, whether distant or recent, and create a vibrant network that has the power to create connections for current students and influence generations.

Why Give to the Lipscomb - Chapman Alumni Fund

The Lipscomb Alumni Society is a network of professional contacts—all with whom you already have one thing in common. Giving back is truly a strong tradition at UC Davis. Our Lipscomb Alumni Society has consistently given back to support the legacy of training excellent orthopaedic surgeons. Our legacy is one of giving back!

By donating to the Lipscomb Alumni Fund you are continuing the tradition of giving that we hope will last a lifetime. You are helping to ensure that our trainees have what they need to succeed. Excellent education opportunities, tools for learning, and mentorship and support from successful Lipscomb Alumni.

Who Decides What is Funded?

A group of dedicated members of Lipscomb Alumni Society have come together to create the Lipscomb Alumni Council. The Council is comprised of 10 alumni that guide all funds donated.

They meet 3 times per year to provide direction to the department and fund the areas of greatest need. In addition, they will be reporting annually about the people your donations have supported and the work accomplished.
