Dear MS1s, MS2s, and MS3s,
The DGSOM Chapter of Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) has a project aimed at supporting all of you through the tough journey that is medical school: The Medical Student BurnOut Project (MBOP).
The Gold Humanism Honor Society members are hosting zoom sessions designed to provide a safe and confidential space to talk about anything with an MS4. More information about MBOP is on the sign-up sheet (link below).
If you are interested in participating, you can sign up for a September 2021 MBOP session here.
We hope to see you at our meetings! Please email us if you have any questions or suggestions.

For those of you, current or former string players, or orchestral trumpet, there’s an exciting opportunity to join the L.A. Doctors Symphony, who’s looking for people to join. This orchestra has been in existence a long time (I’ve been a member as a violinist over 25 years). While it used to be made up primarily of doctors and allied health professionals, now anyone who’s ever been to a doctor can join and there are a good number of young musicians in it—in case I frightened you by saying I’ve been in it for over 25 years. I’m sending this out since we would like to build up our ranks and because it’s probably a truism that many of you have played an instrument at one time or another, but not all have kept it up. This is a chance to rejoin your past.
Rehearsals will start September 6th at 343 South Church Lane (a 5 minute drive from UCLA) and happens every Tuesday night from 7:30 to 10. If you can’t make every Tuesday, that’s fine—and same if you can’t make every concert. There are about 4 concerts a year, held in various venues, mostly on the Westside. This is a no-pressure, volunteer orchestra (with no required membership dues) and one does not have to play at an advanced level to be part of it, but you should be comfortable playing music played by an orchestra. We do play fairly standard classical repertoire but modern works as well. You can view the website at ladso.org.
If you are interested or have questions, please let me know (as well as what instrument you play and your prior instrumental experience). In addition, if you know anyone who might be interested in joining, feel free to forward this to them.
P.S. All musicians will be required to be vaccinated as of September
Interested in helping serve the patients at Harbor-UCLA? Come volunteer at our weekly food pharmacy! It takes place every Wednesday morning from 8am-11am in front of the Harbor-UCLA entrance. We offer fresh produce to over 300 patients per week! If interested, please contact Dr. Natasha Thomas at email@example.com.
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)
Immigration Court and Detention
Hours: Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (available in the evenings when needed) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (310)206-2980 To directly make an appointment with Attorney Habiba: https://habibaucimm.youcanbook.me/
Service: Confidential legal assistance provided by experienced attorneys on a wide range of legal issues. Several immigration consultations each quarter for all students. All services by appointment only. For more information, go to www.studentlegal.ucla.edu.

For international students with non-immigrant status (F, H, J visas, etc.), the Dashew Center for Internation Students (http://www.internationalcenter.ucla.edu/) and the International Student Support Program (us.myissp.com) provide advisory support and nurture a vibrant international student community.
