School of Medicine

The UCI School of Medicine shines on the world stage as an enterprising champion of innovation and discovery. As an integral part of the Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences and UCI Health, we collaborate with partners campuswide to advance high-impact research, educate a diverse health workforce, and deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care.

Join us in our goal to create a healthier tomorrow by supporting our students today. Consider a gift that helps define the future of health and wellness by supporting those who will address the healthcare needs of the world’s growing, aging and increasingly diverse population in the decades to come. Your generosity will ensure that talented students from all backgrounds and communities have opportunities to advance in health professions – a proven way to reduce healthcare inequities. As students’ annual expenses for tuition and fees have increased 100 times over since the school opened in 1968, they need support now more than ever.   

Below are three ways you can make a difference.


  • 1896 Society: Gifts to the Dean's Excellence Fund allow us to fuel our Discover. Teach. Heal. mission. This fund enables the School of Medicine to advance our strategic initiatives, respond quickly to opportunities as they arise and support our students through M.D. scholarships when they need it the most.

  • Graduate Studies: Support the next generation of researchers at the UCI School of Medicine by investing in graduate studies. All gifts to this discretionary fund enable graduate students to engage in leading-edge basic science and translational research, and work directly with our world-class faculty.

  • M.D./Master of Public Health (M.P.H.)Scholarship: Gifts to the Medical Education Scholarships Fund through this campaign will support an annual M.D./M.P.H. scholarship created by the Class of 1972. The mission of the scholarship is to encourage medical students to learn Public Health principles and communication skills to better meet population health needs. The goal is to involve clinicians in improving societal health by addressing unmet population health needs in their area of expertise (e.g., birth outcomes, dementia, addiction, obesity), and to rise to meet the needs of new health challenges, such as pandemics.

A gift of any amount will contribute to the development of bright medical minds and innovative ideas for addressing complex healthcare challenges. By making a gift, you play a crucial role in our students’ ongoing success and future accomplishments, which will transform our community and beyond.

Let’s create a brilliant future for healthcare – together.
