In 2011, Kinder Foundation committed $1 million toward the acquisition and installation of the self-contained simulated radiotherapy treatment facility in the Kinder Foundation Classroom at the school. The classroom provides an immersive life-sized virtual environment for the training of students in the school’s three radiologic sciences baccalaureate programs. It was the first system of its kind in the U.S.
The foundation’s gift also supports endowed scholarships providing annual financial support for academically able students enrolled in any of the school’s eight baccalaureate health professions programs. Endowed funds make it possible for more students to pursue their education in these fields and further address the need for trained individuals in the healthcare sector.mdanderson.org
