Loma Linda University is located in a quiet suburban neighborhood within the city of Loma Linda in San Bernardino County, California. With a population of nearly 25,000, Loma Linda (Spanish for ‘Beautiful Hill') is part of the Inland Empire region—which is home to nearly 3.5 million residents—and is positioned by the best Southern California has to offer, including Los Angeles, San Diego, Palm Springs, Disneyland and Orange County.
Loma Linda is also one of the few places in the world with the highest longevity. Deemed a ‘Blue Zone' by American researcher, explorer and documentarian Dan Buettner, Loma Linda residents live longer, healthier lives than anywhere else in the world. While Loma Linda physicians treat a broad and diverse patient base, they find many of their patients have a great interest in health and tend to follow a healthful lifestyle that contributes to their longevity.
As a physician with the Loma Linda Faculty Medical Group, you'll find that Loma Linda is perfectly situated with easy access to both outdoor and indoor activities.
Loma Linda is located in southern California's Inland Empire and is only an hour's drive away from world-class dining, shopping, theaters and museums in Los Angeles. Just a 60-minute drive to the east of the Inland Empire are the golf courses, shopping and spas of Palm Springs.
Loma Linda is surrounded by gorgeous views of California's highest peaks, including Mt. Baldy, Mt. San Bernardino, Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. San Jacinto. Tree-lined streets and numerous parks give our community a comfortable, friendly atmosphere—one that the many families in the area appreciate.
