A Message from the Vice Dean for Medical Education


Dear Students:

We are here to help you on your incredible and amazing journey to becoming a physician.

We encourage you to take full advantage of the Student Support Services here at the UC Davis School of Medicine including our College Advising System, Office of Academic Services, Office of Student Wellness, Office of Diversity, Counseling and Psychological Services, and our Student Interest Groups. This website is a helpful source of information, but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out and ask any member of our team. The student handbook is another good source of information about procedures, policies and resources that guide us. It is available online, as are our associated policies that relate to student life. Please visit the medical student policies' website for more information.

Most importantly, be sure to enjoy and take full advantage of the many opportunities available to you here at UC Davis. I know that you will look back fondly at these years as some of the most memorable and epic adventures in both personal and professional growth.


Mark Servis, M.D.
Vice Dean for Medical Education
