Why the Mednet Email Account? David Geffen School of Medicine medical students receive Mednet accounts as they start their first year. To be eligible to receive a Mednet account, accepted students must complete the Mednet Accounts for Entering Medical Students Secret Word Submission form on the Accepted Student Checklist.

All third and fourth year medical students are required to carry a UCLA issued pager; outside pagers are not accepted.
The annual rental fee for a UCLA pager and airtime must be paid before one will be issued to you. This cost includes the pager, airtime, use of 800 phone numbers, etc. Please note, this is not a deposit and therefore you do not own the pager and are required to return it before going on a leave of absence or graduating. For more information about pagers, please go here.
To use any device for University business, it must satisfy all the security requirements and standards of both the University and UCLA Health Sciences. Devices that cannot meet these requirements are not suitable for University work and are not permitted to access or store any University data. Please go here for more information.
