"PULSE (Pre-Medical Undergraduate Learning Through Shadowing Experience) is a UCLA student-run physician shadowing organization aiming to provide members with a holistic overview of the medical field through exposure to a diverse array of clinical specialties, community involvement, and professional development. As an undergraduate organization, we aspire to encourage our members to explore the multi-faceted nature of healthcare in order to challenge them intellectually, broaden their perspectives, and better prepare them for a career in medicine."

What We Do

PULSE was founded in Spring 2015 by Anant Randhawa, Amol Patel, Vandan Patel, and Karanveer Syal to provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to experience all aspects of the hospital in their undergraduate career. Our organization does not have a GPA requirement as we feel that a physician's capabilities are not always measured by just a number. ​ UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Medical Center (RRMC) is ranked the third best hospital in the nation. As a teaching hospital, RRMC provides an unparalleled learning experience. PULSE collaborates with RMMC’s medical students, physicians, residents, and other medical personnel to offer UCLA undergraduates the opportunity to understand how various departments operate as a functional unit and explore the different dimensions of a career in the medical field. Shadowing is an excellent way to determine if a career in medicine is right for you as it provides a more realistic understanding of what a physician’s typical day entails, from their daily responsibilities, to their most exciting and thrilling moments on the job. Members of PULSE not only interact and build relationships with attending physicians, medical students, residents, and fellows, but also partake in a holistic learning experience that exceeds the limitations of traditional classroom settings. Outside the hospital, PULSE prides itself as an organization that promotes community involvement through our annual St. Baldrick’s Brave the Shave Event, to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research. Additionally, we host quarterly professional development workshops where members have the opportunity to develop and refine their career goals under the guidance of UCLA physicians and PULSE alumni.
