The Keck School of Medicine is undergoing a major transformation. Sparked by the expansion of biomedical research as a result of the Keck naming gift in 1999, it continues today with the restructuring of our clinical enterprise linked to the acquisition of USC University Hospital and USC Norris Cancer Hospital, and the opening of the new Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center. Simultaneously, we have implemented major changes in medical and graduate education that have enhanced the candidate pool and significantly improved measurable outcomes of education and training.
The School itself and many of its major departments are under new leadership with a mandate to achieve excellence in research, education and health care. Never in the history of USC has there been such an outstanding opportunity for the School of Medicine to become a leader among private academic institutions.
