The intersection of Le Conte and Tiverton Avenues in Westwood is now also a critical juncture in medical education. Geffen Hall, named for UCLA’s largest donor, is a new kind of learning environment for tomorrow’s scientists and health care leaders.
Based on the understanding that health care is a team effort — one that brings people, disciplines, and discoveries together to achieve what they could not achieve individually — the facility enhances the already exceptional David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. The building combines the newest technology, spaces that promote collaboration and an open environment that includes a vast courtyard.
“Geffen Hall’s glass façade reflects our vision for the future of science and medicine and the connection between our faculty and students and the people we serve,” says John Mazziotta, UCLA’s vice chancellor for health sciences. Four out of five graduates will remain in California for their residency training, which is a key indicator of where they will practice in the future and another way the health sciences at UCLA deliver excellence to our state and beyond.
An exclusive celebration held Oct. 23 included a tour of the LEED-certified Geffen Hall, in which many naming opportunities exist.
