The University of California Board of Regents established the UCLA School of Medicine in 1946; the school opened its doors in 1951 and graduated its first class in 1955. In 2002, the school was renamed the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in recognition of an historic gift by philanthropist David Geffen. Mr. Geffen's continued generosity ensures that the school can compete with the finest medical institutions in the world for outstanding faculty and provides resources for exceptional medical students.
