Through an agreement with the Office of Medical Education (OME) and the Office of Continuing Medical Education (OCME), UC Davis medical students are invited to attend local UC Davis Health System Continuing Medical Education conferences for free. To encourage student participation, OME has agreed to pay for the student’s conference meals and OCME will waive the tuition for current UC Davis medical students. It is a great way to hear outstanding UC Davis faculty describe the latest diagnostic and treatment options in a multitude of specialties and to network with some of the outstanding professionals in the health-care field. Interested students should visit the OCME website at CME on the intranet) for a list of upcoming conferences and to register. Of course, students are always welcom to attend department grand rounds and should check them out when thinking about a focus area for their residency program. Department grand round schedules are also posted on the OCME website.
