Levey, M.D., vice chancellor for UCLA Medical Sciences and dean of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, gave his annual address. He expressed his pride for the medical school’s new Learning Center, the growing number of medical student scholarships, and the school’s relationship with Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science and the University of California, Riverside, and the extraordinary success of the new Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

“Over the last 15 years, we have expanded and enhanced our donor base, increased the number of scholarships, added more than 100 endowed chairs, increased National Institutes of Health grant funding almost threefold, strengthened relationships with our colleagues across campus, completed construction of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and five new research buildings and experienced the exhilaration of Mr. David Geffen endowing and naming the school of medicine,” he said. Dr. Levey reported that the school and hospital system are in great shape and that his successor will inherit an “A-team” to manage the large, complicated and dynamic academic medical center.
