Student Affairs

​Welcome to the Office of Student Affairs

We believe that your personal and professional development is linked to your well-being and health -- physical, mental, and social health. We provide support and resources to our students, with the goal of supporting their journey of becoming a physician.

Involvement Opportunities

Medical students engage their community and complement their medical education, training, and experience through a variety of leadership positions, student organizations, professional associations, and medical interests groups. Student government and student organization leadership positions provide opportunities to grow through service activities, professional development, and community involvement.

Programs and Activities

Medical student health and wellness are an integral component to professional competence. We have a variety of programs focused on social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual development. UC San Diego medical students strive for balance and health in their lives as they pursue their medical degree.

Support Systems

UC San Diego School of Medicine has both formal and informal support systems designed to assist with the many transitions medical students face. UC San Diego faculty, staff and medical students work together to provide a network of resources, programs and support services for medical student success including research opportunities and funding for travel to professional meetings.
