Class of 2023 Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to the UCSD School of Medicine. We are all looking forward to seeing you again on Tuesday, August 27th for an orientation week that will conclude with the White Coat ceremony on Friday, August 30th. It will be our privilege to work with you over the course of your medical education.

Up until now, most of you have primarily had contact with our Admissions group. Over the coming months, you will be interacting with additional student and curricular support units.

The Student Affairs Office will be your primary point of contact for administrative matters as you enter the School of Medicine and make your way through medical school.

The Office of Diversity and Community Partnerships offers support for students interested in working in community-academic partnerships and on diversity projects. It is additionally the home for our PRIME-Health Equity program.

The MedEd Educational Technology Office (MedEDTech) provides a wide range of technology-based resources and activities including the Medical Education Web Portal, OASIS Evaluation System, ExamSoft and other MedEDTech online resources. Your access privileges to these resources will be automatically expanded as you approach the beginning of school.

The Office of Undergraduate Medical Education provides support for the core and elective components of the medical school curriculum, the educational support services, course evaluations, and the multidisciplinary and anatomy laboratories.

Please remember to frequently visit the Orientation website. Posting of new information will be ongoing over the summer months. The website includes information regarding prematriculation requirements as well as information for family regarding the White Coat Ceremony. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Affairs Office at (858) 534-3700 or by e-mail.
