We work hard,
and experience more
in the most colorful city in the world.
Life here is distinct and at your fingertips
With training sites situated all over the city.
UCLA has an expansive clinical footprint spanning the greater Los Angeles area, giving you a wide spectrum of patient care learning opportunities. You’ll meet Angelenos, and folks from around the globe, from all walks of life and experience the diversity of the city while you are at it. Your possibilities are endless.
Explore your interests
From community clinics to wilderness medicine and everything in between.
You’ll find exceptional things to experience and learn, with great friends to share it all with. At UCLA, there are unlimited things to explore and over 80 medical student organizations to join. The city is yours, choose your adventure.
Launch the life you were meant to lead here. Chase breakthroughs, unleash discoveries, find your people.
There are plenty of ways to think outside the car and avoid traffic if you know where to look. Bumper-to-bumper bikes? Not a thing.
It literally is the people. At UCLA, your classmates aren’t competitors. We’re collaborators. Partners in curiosity who push each other.
Where ambition meets joy. The outcome isn’t a degree, it’s a life of impact.
A seaside cafe could absolutely be where the next big idea in biotech is born.
We collaborate better. At UCLA, it’s not enough to be brilliant. It’s about who and how you uplift.
We know your time is precious
We have housing for that, tailored to your unique needs.
Medical students have multiple options for student housing, either centrally located on the UCLA campus footprint or with a direct bus line in.
Virtual housing tour
The global pandemic has rendered many elements in life challenging – especially for you. How do you choose the next step in your journey without stepping foot on an academic medical center’s campus? We’ll try to make it easier for you by giving you a tour of some available housing options, by students who are already here.
Weyburn Terrace at UCLA was built around you and was designed to meet the numerous demands and rigors of graduate school. Centrally located, you can easily stroll from Westwood Village to the hospital, the medical school or north campus. Pro-tip: the Bruin Bus stops out front and will take you directly to most things on campus.
Slightly farther off campus, but not by much. From the central pool and spa area, to the indoor club lounge, and business center, gathering with your friends and colleagues has never been easier. You’ll also find ground level retail, including a Target, along with nearby restaurants and an on-site fitness center. Pro-tip: the Big Blue Bus stops out front and will take you directly to campus.
Committed to actively dismantling structural racism in our organization.
Compassionate, inclusive and equitable care for our diverse LGBTQ community.
We seek inquisitive leaders willing to speak up and dissent.
A wide array of cultures, food, entertainment – and you just get to interact with people from all different walks of life.
