Community engagement is a core mission of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and UCLA Health - of equal importance as education, research and clinic care.
As a member of the faculty, you already make a significant contribution to helping improve the quality of life in our communities. By conducting community-engaged research, you can take that contribution to the next level and beyond.
