Being involved has never been easier!
PLANNING EVENTS FOR STUDENT ORGS:
Update as of March 1, 2022: Students orgs may serve food and gather for in-person student organization events/activities, ONLY outside. All need to be fully masked indoors and outdoors and must clean up after themselves. Food is not allowed to be eaten at Geffen Hall (inside spaces).
Event Planning Workflow when in-person gatherings and in-person with food events are permitted:
1) Plan Event: Meet with Faculty Advisor to plan speakers & logistics
2) If in-person with no food: Minimum 2 weeks before, add to the Medical Student Calendar
If in-person and serving food outside: Complete this form to obtain SAO permission. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, add to the Medical Student Calendar once approved
3) Reserve a Room: https://medschool.ucla.edu/current-room-reservations
4) Advertise via Listserve, social media such as class Facebook pages, announce at lecture
5) If outside and serving food, at least 5 business days before, submit your Order Request & RSVP Form
6) Email Mary Ann to confirm food delivery instructions
7) After Event: Fill out SAO and MSC Post-Event Evaluation
*All events must be added to the Medical Student Calendar. Please email Mary Ann if you are planning any large events/conferences and expect more than 50 people to attend.
Events that start post-7 pm on weekdays and on weekends require arrangement of facilities and security at an extra cost to the group.
