First Gen Students at UCLA DGSOM

First Gen Students at UCLA DGSOM
First Gen Students at UCLA DGSOM

First Gen is an extension of the larger UCLA-wide First To Go! Initiative highlighting the first-generation experience in higher education. In this group, the first gen medical students are those who are the first in their families to attend college. Students who identify as "First Gen" will be able to connect to other DGSOM students, residents, fellows, faculty, and 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). We connect, empower and prepare our First Gen Student at DGSOM by placing each FG student in a First Gen Family which guides them on their path to medicine.
