2017 is Sklar’s 15th anniversary, and we’re celebrating by giving back to the community that has given us so much. For every month of the year, our team has chosen one local charity that we’ll be supporting through donations, fundraising, and boosting awareness of their great work. These organizations create opportunities, lend a hand to people in hardship, and help make Boca Raton an even better place to live.
Florida Atlantic University
For the month of August, Sklar is proudly supporting Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine by making a donation to their White Coats-4-Care program.
FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine is one of 147 accredited medical schools in the U.S. The college was launched in 2010, when the Florida Board of Governors made a landmark decision authorizing FAU to award the M.D. degree. After receiving approval from the Florida legislature and the governor, it became the 134th allopathic medical school in North America and welcomed its inaugural class in 2011. With more than 70 full and part-time faculty and more than 1,300 affiliate faculty, the college matriculates 64 medical students each year and has been nationally recognized for its innovative curriculum.
In June 2014, FAU’s College of Medicine launched its first University-sponsored residency in internal medicine. To date, the college has residency programs in internal medicine, general surgery, emergency medicine and psychiatry.
In order to ensure that the region will continue to have an adequate and well-trained physician workforce, Sklar takes a special interest in FAU. We’re proud to offer support to Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and its hardworking faculty and student body. Learn more at www.fau.edu.
