  • How can you say no to one day of service?

    Alumni Shadowing is a unique opportunity for you to connect with our current medical students, while providing them with insight into a career in medicine and to learn first-hand about your work-life balance as a physician. You will be paired with a current medical student and are encouraged to answer questions about your practice environment, practice model, clinic management, and your provider team.

    If you would like to participate or have questions, please contact Molly Gervais, executive director of development at:

  • The Keck School’s Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) program, which was cited by the Association of American Medical Colleges as a core curriculum strength, is a two-year continuum course for our first- and second-year medical students, in which they learn basic clinical skills.  The students meet in small groups of six with a single instructor for a half-day session every Tuesday, for the entire academic year.

    In addition to the weekly morning sessions, students also attend afternoon workshops every Thursday and focus on a particular interviewing or physical exam skill. Volunteer faculty members receive a small stipend, complimentary parking, textbook materials, and a voluntary faculty appointment that includes access to Keck’s online library resources.

    To learn more about becoming a volunteer faculty member for the ICM program, please email Greg Harlan, ICM program director, at

Hearing directly from alumni about their experiences in the “real world” is an invaluable opportunity for our students, helping to shape their ambitions for life after graduation. By talking to students in person or through streaming video, you can help prepare them for success. Sound like fun?
