The UCR School of Medicine at the UCR Palm Desert Center

To best serve the Coachella Valley region of Riverside County, the UCR School of Medicine is developing a regional presence, with a major hub located at the UCR Palm Desert Center. For nearly 10 years, the center has served as a satellite of the UCR campus, offering regionally relevant educational and research programs, including a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing.

The center also serves as a base of operations for the growing School of Medicine, with plans to develop a branch office of the Center for Healthy Communities, the medical school’s research center that promotes collaborations between UCR faculty, community-based-organizations, grass-roots community leaders, and academic investigators. Clinical activities are also planned.

This major new footprint in the Coachella Valley would also afford opportunities for closer collaboration with the health professions training programs in the region, as well as research collaborations with the Health Assessment Resource Center (HARC) and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative – both of which are located at the UCR Palm Desert Center.
