How You Can Help

Dr. Benharash teaching with model of the heart

The UCLA Department of Surgery is one of the top surgical departments in the world. Our surgeons are world-class leaders in their field who combine a vast wealth of clinical experience with a stellar record of innovative research.

Your donation will allow us to recruit the brightest young faculty, promote cutting-edge research, and teach the next generation of medical students and residents. Further, it will allow us to remain competitive on a national level with comparable or even lesser departments whose financial reserves have been in place for many years.

The future of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA as a truly great medical school depends more than ever on gifts from private sources. We sincerely hope that you will become a UCLA Department of Surgery supporter and by doing so, help us to continue our tradition of leadership and extraordinary accomplishment. We also hope that you think of UCLA as your hospital and look to us for all of your healthcare needs.

Thank you for your consideration.
