UCLA Medical School has a traditional MD degree, which is separated into three sections: Human Biology and Disease, Core Clinical Clerkship, and 4th Year Colleges. Some of the most popular areas of study include emergency medicine, psychiatry, diagnostic radiology, and internal medicine. There are also joint degrees, including a MD/PhD through the Medical Scientist Training Program, a MD/MBA with the UCLA Anderson School of Management, and a MD-Oral Surgery Residency. The school also has a program for students interested in working with disadvantaged populations through the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and the UCLA Medical Education Program. Students can perform clinics at affiliated hospitals in the area, like the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the Los Angeles Country Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, and the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center.
Outside of the classroom and hospital settings, students have opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities like talent shows, banquets for second and fourth years, and a special senior show. After graduation, students can take part in a UCLA Medical Alumni Association project, Books Without Borders, which helps US military doctors and nurses receive medical textbooks and journals while they’re stationed overseas. Students interested in a broad curriculum and a chance to study at a top medical school should look into the program at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine.
