The University of California, Irvine Medical Center (UCIMC) is proud to announce the Diversity in Graduate Medical Education Virtual Residency Open House on Saturday, August 22, 2020 from 9:00am-12:00pm. As an institution, it is our mission to promote inclusive excellence by recruiting and supporting a wide array of physicians who are able to serve a diverse patient population and enable our local Orange County community to thrive.
We invite 4th year medical students who are seeking to begin residency in June/July 2021 to attend our virtual gathering to learn about the Graduate Medical Education experience from multiple perspectives within the UCIMC environment. In the interest of promoting inclusive excellence in our community, we encourage medical students from AOA- and LCME-accredited schools throughout the United States to attend.
Students can refer to https://sites.uci.edu/cohsdiversity/residencyopenhouse/ for full program details including the RSVP form, agenda, and answers to FAQs.
Residency Explorer is a resource for rising 4th-year medical students from MD-granting and DO-granting medical schools in the United States and international medical students and graduates who are applying to residency programs in 2020. The tool allows applicants to research individual residency programs in 23 specialties and compare themselves to applicants who previously matched at those programs as well as explore program characteristics across many areas of interest.
Residency Explorer is the only resource with original, source-verified data from the 9 national organizations involved in the transition to residency. While Residency Explorer does not advise students where to apply or predict where they may match to a residency program, it can help as they work with student affairs deans, advisors, and mentors to develop a list of programs for further investigation. Last year, 9 out of 10 applicants said after using Residency Explorer, they felt more confident about which programs to apply to and felt more informed about the characteristics of programs of interest to them.
If you have questions about Residency Explorer, please consult the FAQ and/or Help sections at https://www.residencyexplorer.org.

UCLA is in the process of developing a large, centralized registry of de-identified patient data for research related to COVID-19. This is an exciting, innovative endeavor that will provide invaluable data for UCLA investigators. We are hoping to recruit 3rd or 4th year medical students who are interested in contributing to chart abstraction efforts.
Interested students should email Jenny Brook (email@example.com) or Dr. Emily Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and to participate in a tutorial covering the abstraction process.

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:
