The UCI School of Medicine shines on the world stage as an enterprising champion of innovation and discovery. Our goal is to advance high-impact medical research, educate a diverse health workforce and deliver evidence-based, patient-centered healthcare.

Here we routinely create groundbreaking research and clinical advances, which are translated into innovative healthcare solutions. Located in Orange County, the heart of Southern California, UCI School of Medicine students enjoy beautiful year-round weather and relaxing beaches.

The school is in close proximity to Los Angeles and San Diego counties and ideally situated near dozens of healthcare startups, research labs and medical device companies.
