UC Davis Health Student Review
Welcome to the UC Davis Health Student Review. As Co-Editors-in-Chief, we are proud to introduce UC Davis students, faculty, and staff to the UC Davis School of Medicine’s first ever medical student publication. As a publication for students by students, we hope to provide tomorrow’s physician-scientists with an opportunity to develop the skills they need today while following in the tradition of research and clinical excellence that UC Davis has developed over the last century.
In recognizing the importance of coupling classroom learning and clinical experience with academic pursuit and research training, we hope to provide a medium for students from the UC Davis School of Medicine and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing to present data, share experiences, and develop their talent as writers, researchers, and editors by contributing throughout the publication process. In addition, we hope these experiences will provide an opportunity for health professions students to not only connect and build lasting relationships with faculty mentors but also to serve as teachers and mentors for undergraduate students. It is in nurturing these relationships that we see an opportunity to not only grow as individuals but to truly grow as a UC Davis family.
As we launch our inaugural issue in the coming months, we ask that you consider authoring a submission, sharing your time as a faculty reviewer, or contributing as student editor. With the UC Davis Health Student Review, we hope to begin a tradition that will change what it means to be a medical student at the UC Davis School of Medicine. We envision this publication as one that will play a critical role in shaping the leaders of tomorrow and we invite you all to join us in being part of it.
