USP also offers 984 extra-curricular programs for its students and the wider community that range from science and culture to innovative health care and therapy. USP has two major hospitals and dental health centers that directly benefit the population, and a partnership with two of the best hospitals in the cities of São Paulo and Ribeirão Preto. There are also sports practice centers, theaters, symphonic and chamber orchestras, and many other scientific and cultural diffusion centers. USP is a research-led institution, and since its foundation it has maintained a leadership role in Brazilian scientific and scholarly production, being responsible for 22% of all Brazilian academic output. Besides, the university graduate provision corresponds to 16% of all PhD awarded in Brazil, and 44% of the state of São Paulo.
