David Geffen School of Medicine Professor Daniel J. Benjamin welcomes medical students, space permitting, to audit his spring quarter Anderson School of Management MBA course, "Precision Medicine." The health care industry is undergoing a technology-driven transformation, with screening, treatment, and advice all becoming more tailored to an individual’s genes, behavior, and environment. This course will address the opportunities and challenges of this new landscape for those who will work in the health care industry, including entrepreneurs, managers, venture capitalists, health insurers, and healthcare administrators. Precision health care technologies discussed in the course will include genomic risk prediction, digital diagnosis, targeted therapeutics, remote monitoring, and fitness and dieting apps, among others. The course will also address consumers’ understanding of the technology, ethical issues in precision health care, and the behavioral economics of take-up and continued use of precision health interventions.
This course is based on cases and guest speakers, supplemented by relevant background reading. The cases draw on real issues faced by precision-health businesses. The guest speakers are experienced managers, founders, venture capitalists, investors, doctors, and scientists.
Two sections of the course are being offered: in-person Mondays 1:00 - 3:50pm (MGMT 298D-25) and remote Thursdays 7:10 - 10:00pm (MGMTEX 439-05). Interested students should email the professor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello everyone! My name is Jamil Samaan and I am a current third year internal medicine resident at Cedars Sinai. I will be starting my Gastroenterology fellowship with an emphasis on research this coming summer. I am teaming up with my incoming research co-fellow, Yee Hui Yeo, to create and lead a unique and productive research team composed of medical students and residents. Below are details for those interested:
What level of research experience are we looking for?
Previous research experience is not required. We hope this serves as an opportunity to learn how to conduct research as well as expand on previous research skills. We will provide you with resources and mentorship to ensure your success with your projects.
Do I need to be interested in GI?
While an interest in GI would be helpful, it is not necessary. We are looking for students who are interested in answering interesting clinical questions using the scientific method. Skills learned from our research team will be applicable to most if not all fields of medicine.
What other benefits are there to joining the team?
- The majority of opportunities to present our research findings at local/nation/international conferences will be given to medical students
- Journal clubs for those interested
- Learn/refine statistical analysis skills
- Learn/improve manuscript preparation skills
- Learn/improve IRB preparation skills
- Mentoring from both medicine residents and GI fellows
- Potential letters of recommendation from attendings involved in our research
If interested, please email me (Jamil.Samaan@cshs.org) and we can setup a zoom meeting to discuss. For your reference, below are links to Yee Hui's and my research profiles. Thanks!

Every year UCLA Recreation hosts a summer academic enrichment program on campus, Summer Discovery. The program provides participants, who are middle school to high school aged children from around the world, the opportunity to experience what college life will be like. The Summer Discovery students live on campus in the dorms and get to experience some of the extracurricular activities Los Angeles has to offer after classes conclude each day.
We look to hire graduate level students or higher to instruct these classes. This year, the program runs from June 27th through August 5th. The pay for these courses is based on the experience and education levels of the instructors.
The classes run from 9:30 – 11:00, 11:15 – 12:45, 1:00 – 2:30, and 2:45 – 4:15. You would not need to teach in each time frame, only what would/could fit your schedule.
We are offering a new class this year called Careers in Medicine, that runs 9:30 – 11:00 and 1:00 – 2:30 that may specifically be of interest:
Careers in Medicine

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.
