For Prospective Medical Students

A New Medical School for Inland Southern California

If you aspire to be a patient-centered physician, if your passion is serving those in your community who are less fortunate, the UCR School of Medicine may be the pathway to achieving your dream.

A Medical School with a Distinctive Focus

 With the arrival of our inaugural class in 2013, the UCR School of Medicine became the sixth medical school in the world renowned University of California. This medical school is distinctive in its focus on serving the needs of the Inland Southern California region — a rapidly growing and ethnically diverse region that is home to 4.2 million people.

UCR medical students benefit from an intimate educational experience that features:

  • A organ-based, integrated approach to the science of human biology and disease,
  • Instruction in clinical skills from the very beginning,
  • A distinctive, longitudinal clinical experience that begins in Year 2, and
  • Mentorship from a team of student-centered biomedical science faculty and community-based clinical faculty.
