Class Listservs

Each School of Medicine class has a campus mailing list (listserv) to which anyone can send messages about topics that may be of interest to the class. Students are automatically subscribed to their class listserv upon matriculation; others interested in receiving listserv messages may subscribe by following the instructions listed below. Messages sent from email addresses that are not subscribed to a listserv must be approved by UME. Listserv messages are not archived.

Guidelines for listserv usage

  • Messages should be related to school activities and opportunities (eg, events, electives, scholarships)
  • For work, volunteer, or research opportunities for medical students, please use the UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development site:
  • If posting a message related to a for-profit venture, disclose your involvement with the company or association with the person who asked that you disseminate the information.
  • Do NOT use the listservs for postings about housing (available or needed) or items for sale. To post items to buy, sell, or trade, or about housing, please use the UCSF Campus Trader site:
  • When posting surveys for students, follow SOM Educational Evaluations policy:
  • Use your UCSF email when posting to the listserv

If you want to post something but aren’t sure if it should be sent to the listservs, please contact Frances Harvey for guidance.
