First Generation at DGSOM at UCLA

First Generation Students at UCLA at DGSOM is comprised of "First-Generation" (First Gen) medical students. First Gen medical students are the first in their family to attend college. Students who identify as "First Gen" will be able to connect to other DGSOM students, residents, fellows, faculty, and DGSOM alumni who are proudly First Gen themselves. We envision mentorship and tailored resources that focus on student, resident, and faculty well-being and self-preservation (from the medical school years to beyond), through the First Gen lens. We will connect to First Gen resources/workshops at the UCLA university level (the established successful UCLA First To Go campaign) and offer mentorship opportunities for First Gen UCLA college students who are leaning towards a career in medicine. We seek to connect, empower and prepare our First-To-Go! UCLA community for the First Gen path in medicine.
