Maxine and Eugene Rosenfeld have pledged $1 million to establish the Maxine and Eugene Rosenfeld Chair in Medical Education at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. The Rosenfeld Chair supports the teaching and research activities of outstanding faculty, and it is a significant resource in attracting and retaining the most deserving scholars in the field. Dr. Clarence H. Braddock III, vice dean for education at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and chief medical education officer of UCLA Health, has been named as the inaugural Rosenfeld Chair holder.

Dr. Braddock is a national leader in medical-education curriculum development and innovation, and he is a recipient of numerous teaching awards and honors. He joined the UCLA faculty in 2013 as the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA’s first vice dean for education, overseeing all of the school’s undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs. The Rosenfelds are deeply connected to UCLA, and they are tremendous advocates for and philanthropic supporters of students and faculty in the health sciences and campuswide. Their generosity provides vital support for training the next generation of physicians and scientists.
