Year after year, UC Davis continues to show why it’s one of the nation’s leading public universities and a top research institution. UC Davis Health is a hub of innovation where students, trainees, faculty and staff from nearly 100 post-graduate majors bring unique and creative approaches to providing the highest quality patient care. Harnessing the power of an entire university's nationally ranked resources and research, our teams tackle the most pressing health care issues facing the world today.
UC Davis Health excels at translating scientific discoveries and new technology into improved patient care and community-wide health. Some of our most prominent research centers include: UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, UC Davis MIND Institute, the Center for Precision Medicine, Alzheimer’s Disease Center and the Center for Reducing Health Disparities.
Students, residents and fellows get first-hand experience on how UC Davis delivers expert health care to the people who need it most but who can least afford it. We have many programs to increase the safety net of health care services available for all patients, no matter their income or insurance.
The UC Davis Resident, Fellow and Family Readiness Center provides tools to support trainees in Graduate Medical Education programs, including help with academics, family needs, financial information and mental health. There's also the Resident Support Association, which organizes events for spouses and significant others of residents and fellows.
The culture, hands down, is unmatched. There isn’t a group of like-minded individuals from a diverse background anywhere else that have the same mission, which is to treat our patients in a holistic and culturally sensitive manner and to upkeep cultural humility.
The people at UC Davis have become a second family to me. I know that my fellow co-residents and faculty have my back and will support me as I explore and pursue my goals. I have no doubt that the friendships and mentorships formed here will last a lifetime.
My critical skills were definitely sharpened more through UC Davis guiding me to think about things outside of a medical problem. I’m constantly thinking beyond the health issue, asking questions like: "Does my patient have running water?" and "What are their resources to afford medication?"
You choose UC Davis to belong to a diverse and inclusive community. You choose UC Davis because we support each other and elevate each other's voices. You choose UC Davis because we are family.
