"We’re here to support students through their educational journey. We provide a complete support system for all individuals, not only as students but also as professionals."
The Keck School of Medicine educates the nation’s future physicians and biomedical scientists. From day one, medical students help care for patients as part of an innovative curriculum that integrates basic and clinical sciences, technology and communication, the latest medical advances and the oldest healing arts. Students train in one of the largest teaching hospitals in the nation, gaining experience with the diverse, urban population of Los Angeles. Graduate and medical students play leading roles in the creation of new knowledge as part of the Keck School’s vibrant research community.
About Student Services
Keck provides a wide variety of services designed to help students manage their lives as a medical student. From career planning to financial aid, we’re here to support you.
Office of Diversity
Our goal is to graduate socially aware and culturally competent physicians prepared to practice in the global community. We play an active role in the community through various programs that improve the health status of underrepresented minorities.
Office of Wellness
At the Keck School of Medicine, we believe that a physician is only able to care for others if they care for themselves first. We acknowledge the stress inherent in medical school and encourage a culture of compassion for self and others. Our mission is that our array of wellness resources not only helps students thrive throughout their four years of medical school, but inspires them to become champions of physician well-being in their future endeavors.
