It has been over 50 years since the founding of the UC San Diego School of Medicine—a different kind of medical school for a different kind of doctor. Interdisciplinary, innovative, and ultimately transformative, the school set a precedent for a new kind of medical education, one that has produced countless professionals who have advanced the quality of life and care for their patients.
The School of Medicine trains top aspiring physicians in a research-intensive program committed to staying at the forefront of the dynamic field of medicine. Your support helps tomorrow’s medical leaders reinvent the future of care through student clinics and programs. Here are a few different opportunities to support SOM's bright future:
Dean’s Excellence Fund
The School of Medicine Annual Fund supports the highest priorities of the school, including medical education, community outreach and alumni programming.
Your gift in support of scholarships for our talented medical students helps strengthen our school by ensuring that we can continue to recruit the most capable and intelligent students, as well as train current students who require continued financial assistance. As the average debt of medical students grows toward $100,000, scholarships are urgently needed.
