Join Special Olympics @ DGSOM for our annual MedFest on Jan 20th from 11:30-2pm at Switzer Plaza. We will be providing free sports physicals for Special Olympics athletes from Southern California.
At previous MedFests, we've completed about 40 physicals for athletes to compete in sports year-round. Medical students will work with supervising doctors to perform sports physicals. Completion of clerkships is not required. A clinical supervisor of Special Olympics Southern California will provide training on the day of the event. This is a great opportunity for first-year medical students to get clinical experience and learn from more senior medical students. This event is also a great opportunity for all to work with individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. We’ll be joined by UCLA undergrads and Special Olympics Southern California.
Come with scrubs and your stethoscope. Lunch provided.
