Muslim Student Union

Muslim Student Union (MSU) is the Muslim affinity group at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine (DGSOM). We aim to: 1) Educate the DGSOM community on how to provide culturally humble, compassionate, patient-centered care to Muslim patients and their families. 2) Advocate for and support the needs of Muslim students and colleagues at DGSOM. 3) Advocate for and serve the needs of structurally vulnerable communities in Los Angeles with a focus on the local underserved Muslim population. 4) Plan social and professional events to unite the medical student and medical health professional community within DGSOM and UCLA Health. 5) Create an inclusive environment based on understanding, respect, and tolerance that celebrates our differences. 6) Plan interfaith events with our colleagues at DGSOM, UCLA Health and all our affiliated hospitals (Olive View, Harbor, Cedars, VA) to promote a spirit of standing together, health, and well-being amongst our entire community.
