Founded out of the ashes of the Watts Riots, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science is a vital South Los Angeles institution working to eliminate health disparities and providing unique, quality education and training opportunities. We continue to evolve and grow in stride, continually shaped by the needs of the community we serve.  Throughout the years, community visionaries have donated time, insight, and financial resources to build our University.  As a result, we’ve become a recognized leader in education, community-based research, and care. A vast majority of CDU graduates dedicate themselves to life-long careers working in underserved communities.

Join us as we educate our community today for a healthier tomorrow.

This is our legacy. This is our future.
