Kelsey Martin, MD, PhD, Dean of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
I am pleased to share with you the 2019 Annual Report of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA (DGSOM). Reflecting on the past academic year fills me with great admiration for our amazing staff, faculty, trainees and students – and for the profound impact that their contributions have on our mission to heal humankind through leading edge care, research, education and community engagement.
As Dean, I am fortunate to have a panoramic view of the DGSOM community and the way that each of your contributions come together, through great collaboration, determination and optimism, to transform our school, our community and our world.
In the last year alone, your passion for our mission has led to new and exciting breakthroughs that have uncovered the cause of human disease; your support and expertise have provided a generation of physicians with the knowledge and perspective they need to provide compassionate, evidence-based care; your commitment to open minded scientific research has fostered the type of collaborative, data-driven environment that inspires our scientists and ensures biomedical discoveries well into the future; and your humanism has created new opportunities to engage with and improve the health and well-being of populations near and far.
