Scholarship Day at the David Geffen School of Medicine
David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA:
DGSOM seeks students who will be future leaders, have distinguished careers in clinical practice, teaching, research and public service. The school strives to create an environment in which students prepare for a future in which scientific knowledge, societal values and human needs are ever changing.
Degrees & Programs
Degrees: MD + Master's
UCLA PRIME is a five-year dual degree program focusing on the development of leaders in medicine addressing policy, care and research in healthcare for the underserved. The dual degree program leads to a MD and a Masters in areas that complement the mission of the program. These might include MBA, MPH or Masters in Public Policy. The cohort will be composed of approximately 18 students. Students will identify with one of two programs: PRIME UCLA Westwood (14) or PRIME UCLA-CDU (4). Each program will coordinate with the others but acceptance will be to UCLA PRIME.
UCLA/Drew Medical Education Program:
The mission of the College of Medicine is to provide education, research and clinical service in the context of community engagement in order to train physician leaders who promote wellness, who provide care with excellence and compassion and who are committed to transforming the health of diverse and underserved communities. Students matriculate with the David Geffen School of Medicine and complete two years of course work at the UCLA campus.
Degrees: MD + PhD
The mission of the UCLA-Caltech MSTP is to train outstanding future physician scientists. TheMSTP believes that the clinical and research enterprises at UCLA are ideal for combined MD-PhD training. Since its opening in 1955, the UCLA Medical Center (now the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center) has been committed to bench to bedside research and has fostered a pervasive culture of collaborative, interdisciplinary science. This is reflected in the architecture of the campus, with the Hospital, Medical Center and Health Sciences complex all within walking distance of the College of Letters and Sciences, School of Engineering, and nine other professional schools on a single, beautiful campus in West Los Angeles. The breadth and excellence of research at both UCLA and Caltech allows us to offer rigorous training in a wide array of disciplines relevant to improving human health and medicine, ranging from basic sciences to engineering to social sciences and health policy.
