The Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California is located on the 79-acre Health Sciences Campus, three miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles and seven miles from the USC University Park Campus.
The Health Sciences Campus (HSC) is a focal point for students, patients and scientists from around the world. The many clinical, classroom and laboratory resources of the campus combine to form a dynamic, interactive environment for learning, collaboration and scientific discovery.
The Health Sciences Campus lies adjacent to the Los Angeles County+University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center, a primary affiliate of the Keck School of Medicine and one of the nation’s largest teaching hospitals. HSC is also home to the Keck Medical Center of USC - a state-of-the-art academic medical center comprised of the Keck Hospital of USC (formerly USC University Hospital) and the USC Norris Cancer Hospital. The two world-class, USC-owned hospitals are staffed by more than 500 physicians who are faculty at the renowned Keck School of Medicine of USC. USC also partners with the nearby Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
Creating more opportunities for Keck School faculty and students to work at the forefront of biomedicine while continuing to provide outstanding patient care are among the Keck School’s highest priorities. New initiatives at the Keck School and greater HSC include building some 585,000 square feet of new research space, as well as expanding and modernizing patient care facilities.
The Health Sciences Campus is also home to the School of Pharmacy and the Independent Health Professions programs.
