Loma Linda University School of Medicine offers two regional campuses where students can choose to rotate for the third and fourth year of medical school: Kettering Health Network in Dayton, Ohio and AdventHealth Orlando in Orlando, Florida. The regional campuses offer a unique opportunity to train in a region of the country where a student has ties and/or desires to practice during their future career. There may be a tuition incentive for the years spent at the regional campus. Graduates from the regional campuses will receive a combined degree from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine and the regional campus. Many will go on to practice in the local or surrounding communities. Those interested in spending their third and fourth year at one of these regional campuses may indicate this interest on our secondary application.
