University of California, Irvine School of Medicine

The University of California, Irvine School of Medicine (UC Irvine School of Medicine or UCI School of Medicine) is an LCME accredited[1] medical school, located in Orange County's City of Irvine on the University of California, Irvine campus. It is ranked as one of the top 50 U.S. medical schools for research by U.S. News & World Report.[2] The school was founded in 1896 by A.C. Moore and is the oldest continually operating medical school in the greater Los Angeles area. The current medical school was preceded by an osteopathic school named the California College of Medicine and began granting MD degrees in the 1960s.

Today, the School of Medicine has 26 departments with 560 full-time and 1,300 volunteer faculty members involved in teaching, patient care and advancing medical knowledge through scholarly medical and basic science research. Annually, the school educates and trains approximately 400 medical students along with 620 resident physicians and fellows in 45 different programs accredited [4] by the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In addition to offering the professional MD degree, the school offers a combined MD–PhD medical scientist training program, a combined MD/MBA program with UCI's Paul Merage School of Business and a unique combined MD/Master's program called the Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community (PRIME-LC). Medical School research faculty are also engaged in educating over 200 PhD and MS degree students enrolled in several graduate degree programs including the PhD program in pharmacology and toxicology, the PhD program in epidemiology, the MS program in environmental toxicology, the MS program in genetic counseling and participate in the interdisciplinary PhD program in cellular & molecular biosciences (CMB).

Recently completed in 2009, the university hospital includes modern facilities for conducting the latest medical research and training future and practicing physicians. This seven-story hospital facility offers spacious, mostly private rooms and 19 state-of-the-art operating rooms. In addition, the new hospital provides an environment for translational research – allowing more opportunities for researchers and clinicians to collaborate on patient care.

UC Irvine is finishing construction on its $40.5 million, 65,000-square-foot (6,000 m2) on-campus medical education building that will provide a state-of-the-art telemedicine training center. The medical education building will play an important part in supporting new initiatives and technologies in teaching and health care delivery and will be home to the innovative Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community (PRIME-LC).

Ralph V. Clayman, MD currently serves as the Dean of the School of Medicine. Terry A. Belmont serves as the interim chief executive officer of UC Irvine Medical Center and as associate vice chancellor for medical center affairs. Previous Vice Chancellor and Medical School Dean David Bailey, MD retired (2009) at the end of June.
