The Keck School of Medicine of USC is a place of dynamic activity in patient care, scientific discovery, medical and bioscience education, and community service. Our faculty, staff, students, residents, alumni, donors and friends are committed to excellence. Together we are poised to lead medicine in the 21st Century for the benefit of humankind. This is an exciting time of great transformation as we endeavor to create a truly stellar academic medical center at USC.
Located on USC's Health Sciences Campus, just east of downtown Los Angeles, the Keck School of Medicine is 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. University-owned USC Verdugo Hills Hospital further expands the academic medical enterprise into the Foothill communities of Los Angeles. USC also partners with the nearby Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
The Keck School of Medicine also is home to several research institutes, including the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute, the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine at USC, the USC Cardiovascular Thoracic Institute and the USC Institute for Global Health.
Established in 1885, the Keck School is the oldest medical school in Southern California.
