Baking Social and Sale

Calling all bakers! On Monday, November 9, from 6 – 8 pm, we are baking treats to prepare for the bake sale the next day. Make sure to RSVP if you plan on helping out. We will email you the location after you sign up to go, but it will be at a board member’s apartment.

This is an excellent way to hang out and earn some points if you haven’t fulfilled your social requirement for the year yet. Also, (keep it on the DL) there might be some opportunities for yummy taste-testing!

The Bake Sale will be on Tuesday, November 10 along Bruinwalk. Stop by for some delicious baked goodies on your way to class and support our club! If you would like to volunteer and earn some points, you can sign up for up to two 1-hour shifts. Each hour you volunteer will equal 1 point. You can also donate baked goods for 1 point if you would like to help out but can’t fit it into your schedule.

Dorm Dinner at Bruin Plate

Ding Ding! We have a social coming up! Midterms and essays have been wearing us all out, so in order to relieve some stress and hang out together, we are meeting up at the healthiest of UCLA’s dining halls for fun times and wholesome food. We have reserved a room, but unfortunately it is a bit small, and there are only 25 seats available (not including board members). Therefore, it will be first come first serve, so don’t dillydally! Meet up in front of Bruin Plate at 5pm this Friday, November 6. Feel free to bring your friends, too! However, on account of fairness, you may only receive one point for attending the event; you will not receive more points for swiping other people in or bringing more people. Check in with one of the board members to get a point. Sign ups close on Wednesday at 11:59 pm. Please email our Internal Vice President if you have questions. See you there!

Our Crash Course is Getting A Makeover

The Crash Course is an essential part of training to go to clinic, and a familiar step for any experienced Flying Samaritans member. Last spring, we moved our Crash Course online in an unprecedented move to make it more accessible. Previously, we only offered Crash Course training once or twice a quarter, which made it difficult for many members to pass the training and qualify for clinic. The online Crash Course was well-received, and more members were able to pass the written and oral assessments and go on clinic trips. Recently, we revamped the Crash Course with more detailed explanations  in order to increase pass rates and raise our members’ mastery of conducting patient assessments and debriefing the doctor. By preparing our members thoroughly, we will serve our patients more effectively and boost our members’ confidence for a more enjoyable clinic experience. We also created a video demonstration of a sample oral assessment/triage in order to make the information in the Crash Course presentation easier to visualize. We hope these changes will help improve the club as well as the happiness of our patients and members!
