UCLA Health It Begins With U

David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA


UCLA offers fresh perspectives on and effective solutions to complex and pressing challenges. It is one of the best investments in higher education today.  

At UCLA, breakthroughs are translated from the laboratory bench to the patient's bedside through the teamwork of scientists and physicians, thus ensuring safety, efficiency, effectiveness, and rapid results.

Donations to a specific department, division, program, or research area underwrite pilot projects, programs, laboratories and other facilities.

Supporting the work of outstanding faculty helps to recognize and reward extraordinary teaching and research.

Financial resources must be available for the graduate training of UCLA's physicians as scientists and to extend the education of Ph.D.s. Graduate students enrich the academic environment, challenge the faculty, and are crucial to the School's effort to recruit and retain the most eminent professors.

Approximately 85% of UCLA medical students rely on some type of financial aid. The goal is to provide sufficient funding assistance to meet each student's financial need, to keep debt at a manageable level, and to open up career paths.
