Explore Research Innovation at UCLA Health
Dear Medical Students,
Congratulations on surviving yet another year of medical school despite this pandemic!
Little did you know that Neurology has over 20 different fellowships (full list here) with something for just about every one! Despite being one of the most interesting specialties (but I am biased!), Neurology remains one of the least racially and ethnically diverse with only 2 % Black, 3% Hispanic, and 23% Asian neurologists. One way we can remedy this is by providing better mentorship for students of color interested in Neurology, which I personally really benefited from.
UCLA neurology would like for all URM students who are or may be (even a little bit) curious about neurology to sign up here to be paired with a resident, fellow, or attending mentor from a similar background. The goal is to provide guidance, career advice, shadowing or hands-on exposure (ie: LP, botox injections etc), research opportunities, lectures or anything else you may need as you explore career choices. URM M3 and M4 students who are already committed to neurology are also welcome to sign up!
Mentees will be expected to meet (physically or virtually with mentees) once a quarter and it will pretty informal overall. Please sign up or forward it to anyone who may be a good match for this!

Dear DGSOM Community,
“Summer has come and passed. The innocent can never last. Wake me up when September ends.” As you cope with the turmoil either in the block or out in the world, DGSOM AMSA wants to send you cordial greetings and our warmest support. We are dedicated to serving our medical students at both the student life and policy level. in this email, we would like to share with you a couple of outstanding and free legal service resources provided to all UCLA students, including tailored services to our DACA recipients.
For a broad range of legal issues (other than tax and immigration), UCLA Student Legal Services provides assistance such as negotiating on behalf of students and drafting legal documents. For immigration issues, UCLA Undocumented Student Program (USP), in collaboration with the UC Immigrant Legal Services Center, focuses on serving our undocumented and DACA students, as well as students with family members who are undocumented. If you are in fear of losing your legal status for any reason, we encourage you to contact either service for consultation. If your situation is not within the range of either service, you can still obtain a referral to trustworthy outside legal resources. One of us had the pleasure of speaking with UCLA USP Attorney Habiba in person last week and was impressed with her compassion and dedication to our community. Below are details on how to utilize both services.
Service: Case-by-case immigration consultation & immigration workshops (call to sign up) in the following areas:
Immigrating through Family members
Green Cards (Lawful Permanent Residency)
