Education That Makes a Difference

The UCR/UCLA Thomas Haider Program in Biomedical Sciences is Riverside County's only medical education program, providing a unique path of entrance to one of the nation's leading medical schools — the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Our distinctive doctoral program, which integrates the disease-based medical school curriculum with experimental application, trains independent research scientists able to bridge the wide gulfs that currently exist between basic science and clinical medicine.

Special Note to Prospective Students for the UCR/UCLA Thomas Haider Program in Biomedical Sciences

As you may know, the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine has recently been granted "Preliminary Accreditation" by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) to open a full, four-year School of Medicine at UCR as of August 2013. This is very exciting news for us and we hope for you as well. As a result, we will no longer accept new medical students into the UCR/UCLA Thomas Haider Program in Biomedical Sciences. However, we now will offer the opportunity for you to apply to the UCR medical school. We are expanding the number of medical student seats at UCR and will start with a class of 50. The Thomas Haider Program at the UCR School of Medicine will continue the tradition of providing a unique pathway into medical school for UCR students. We hope that you will consider applying directly to the new UC Riverside School of Medicine for its inaugural class enrolling in August 2013. Additionally, you may also apply to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. We look forward to receiving your application.

With innovation, diversity and a public purpose, the UCR Division of Biomedical Sciences delivers distinguished graduates for California's healthcare future.
