R Adams Cowley Endowment

R Adams Cowley Endowment A Project of School of Medicine Professorships

The fruits of Dr. Cowley's work are everywhere. Dr. Cowley directed medical history and redirected the lives of thousands of trauma victims, whose lives were saved through the talents of the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center's medical teams. His pioneering work fueled the pursuit of his vision - that the primary purpose of medicine was to save lives, that every critically ill or injured person has the "right to the best medical care, according to the state-of-the-art and not according to location, severity of injury or ability to pay".

He remains an inspiration to all of us who dedicate our lives to trauma care. We choose to honor him and his legacy through this distinguished professorship with the intent to reward and inspire current and future leaders who will forge the next frontier in trauma and critical care medicine at the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
