Explore Research Innovation at the David Geffen School of Medicine
To truly improve lives, UCLA faculty, researchers, trainees, and students must leave the confines of the campus and connect directly with people in their communities. Today, community engagement is, with teaching, patient care and research, among the core missions of UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
By partnering with organizations outside of UCLA we gain access to venues to train the next generation for healthcare professionals, and learn about our regional communities and how best to improve the health of the people living in those communities. These are the goals with which we are unwaveringly dedicated to strive towards.
