For details on the MD curriculum, see the curriculum web page. For information about applying to the program, see the application web page or contact the Geffen School of Medicine Admissions Office, 17-253 East Center for the Health Sciences, Box 957035, Los Angeles, CA 90095-7035.

Articulated Degree Programs

The Geffen School of Medicine and the Graduate Division offer the Medical Scientist Training Program, an articulated degree program that allows students to earn both the MD and PhD in about eight years, depending on the course of study and research. The PhD may be awarded in one of several medical or social sciences fields.

Concurrent Degree Programs

Concurrent programs with the Anderson Graduate School of Management and Luskin School of Public Affairs, and an articulated program with the Fielding School of Public Health, allow UCLA medical students to earn both the MD and MBA, MD and MPP, or the MD and MPH degrees over five years by following a designated course of study and some shared coursework. Separate application must be made to the Anderson School, Luskin School of Public Affairs, or Fielding School of Public Health during the third year of medical school.
