With the vision of transforming health and healing, Emory University’s Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) is working to pioneer new ways to prevent and treat disease, prepare the next generation to save and improve lives, provide the highest-quality clinical care possible, and serve the community. The Center comprises the schools of medicine, nursing, and public health, as well as a national primate center, a cancer institute, and Emory Healthcare, the most comprehensive health system in Georgia.
Established in 1966, as the Woodruff Medical Center, the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center encompasses components of Emory University responsible for education of health professionals, research affecting health and illness, patient care, and policies for prevention and treatment of disease. The WHSC’s namesake, the legendary leader of The Coca-Cola Company, was a man whose vision and generosity left a lasting imprint on Emory and on Atlanta.
The Center enjoys a robust Principal Gifts culture, and is renowned for its Grateful Patient program. Seventy percent of Emory University's fundraising emanates from the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and, with the advent of new leadership and an upcoming capital campaign, the Center is poised to achieve heightened success. There has never been a more exciting time to join this innovative and impactful healthcare institution.
The Vice President for Development (VP) possesses leadership qualities and proven management skills acquired from senior roles within higher education or a complex healthcare nonprofit institution. The VP has worked effectively in a comprehensive campaign setting and has demonstrated a strong record of raising principal gifts and mentoring gift officers to do the same.
