Welcome to UC Davis School of Medicine — a mission-driven community of learners, physicians, scientists, and staff committed to advancing health equity and improving lives. Since our inaugural class of 1968, our school has had a prominent role in training California’s physician leaders, fostering breakthrough research, providing patient-centered care, and nurturing trusted community partnerships.
I’ve been privileged to be part of UC Davis for more than 30 years and have been inspired by our school’s unique community and commitment to serve a purpose greater than ourselves.
Our dedication to putting our values into action drives our medical school’s success. We are consistently ranked among the nation’s leading medical schools across specialties, with top 10 national rankings in family medicine, primary care and diversity. Our exceptional students, residents and fellows are trained by our renowned faculty at UC Davis Medical Center, the region’s No. 1 ranked hospital and nationally recognized teaching hospital. We’re also a national model for developing innovative pathway programs training physician-scientists and future physicians committed to serving under-resourced urban, rural and American Indian and Alaska Native communities, among many others.

Our strength as a research powerhouse continues to grow, with a record high of $396 million last year in external research funding. Our success lies in our collaborative culture and ability to create innovative research partnerships across UC Davis and with myriad public and private industry partners. More than 500 of our principal investigators and their transdisciplinary research teams are making groundbreaking discoveries that are helping UC Davis Health deliver tomorrow’s health care today.
