The Richard J. Macchia MD Urology Resident Education Fund

The Richard J. Macchia MD Urology Resident Education Fund was conceived by the Department's third Chair, Dr. Jeffrey P. Weiss, in honor of the immense contributions to both resident and medical student education in Urology fostered by Dr. Weiss' predecessor Dr. Richard J. Macchia. Under Dr. Macchia's guidance, SUNY Downstate students rank 4th nationally in terms of numbers matching in Urology programs. Legions of successful and productive academic and practicing Urologists owe their training to Dr. Macchia who generously donated a sum to establish this eponymous fund. The 501c3 tax-deductible Macchia Fund is designated exclusively for the support of educational activities by current Downstate Urology residents such as attendance at meetings and related educational materials and programs. We encourage alumni and interested parties to donate generously to the fund which may be done through our department's administrator, Dolka Fareaux. Department email address is:
