MedDreamers was formed after Pre-Health Dreamers approached medical students at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA (DGSOM) about the financial difficulties undocumented medical students were facing. Our mission is to provide support for undocumented students affiliated with UCLA and CDU who are pursuing health careers. Our goals are to:
- Increase funds, such as loans and scholarships, for undocumented students pursuing health careers.
- Educate students and faculty about how immigration status impacts students, patients, providers, and the community at large.
- Advocate for policy changes that lead to sustainable solutions for undocumented students pursuing health careers.
