Message from the Dean

Dear Fellow Angelino,


Your health is important. Receiving the proper medical attention — and accessing good preventive care — is also important for you, your family and the entire community.


At the Keck School of Medicine of USC, helping you stay healthy is one of our top priorities. That’s why we formed the Dean’s Community Leadership Council, a group of your neighbors who have come together to create this new website,, to make sure you have the right resources to meet your health care needs. Whether you are seeking a new doctor, urgent care or simply looking to schedule a wellness visit, can help connect you and your loved ones with the appropriate skilled medical professionals. 


As the Dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC, I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to serve you, and to play a role in helping make Los Angeles a safer, healthier, happier home for all of us. Please explore


Keck School of MedicineSincerely,


Carmen A. Puliafito, M.D., M.B.A.

Dean, Keck School of Medicine of USC
