WESTWOOD, CA - MAY 30: Regent Sherry Lansing attends the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLAs Hippocratic Oath Ceremony on May 30, 2014 at Westwood, California. The ceremony was a commencement ceremony for some 200 medical students in the Class of 2014. The UCLA Medal was established in 1979 and is the highest honor for extraordinary accomplishment that may be bestowed on an individual by UCLA. Geffen made a $200-million unrestricted gift to UCLA's medical school in 2002. The funding helped propel the school, renamed the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in recognition of his commitment to its current status as a world-class institution for education and research. In 2012, Geffen founded the $100-million, merit-based David Geffen Medical Scholarships. This program covers the entire cost of a medical education for nearly 20 percent of entering students, enabling them to pursue their dreams and graduate debt-free. The gift has served as a role model, inspiring other institutions to substantially increase financial support for their medical students. (Photo by Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty Images for UCLA) less
