Giving to Health Sciences

UC San Diego Health Sciences Advancement is fueling the future of health care for San Diego and beyond by uniting the philanthropic interests of our community with the outstanding clinical care, pioneering research and education of tomorrow’s health care leaders provided by our physician-scientists. As their medical innovations move from bench to bedside, we ensure our community plays an integral role and that our doctors have the best resources at their disposal. Together, we are redefining health care right here, at UC San Diego.
