Just a little bit of info first:
By joining us at UCSD Flying Sams, you recognize there is inherent risks involved. We are an organization that organizes and provides medical care in Enseñada, Mexico. As such, risks normally seen in healthcare facilities are present. These risks are outlined at OSHA – Safety and Health Topics | Healthcare. In addition, we are traveling internationally, and the risks as outlined by the U.S. Dept. of Travel regarding travel to Mexico, and, in particular, the Baja North region, are pertinent. These risks are outlined at U.S. Dept. of Travel / Mexico. Finally, transport is provided by student drivers, and necessarily entails the risk of bodily injury, death, or property damage.
Your involvement with Flying Sams inherently assumes that you understand and acknowledge these risks, among others given for Flying Sams activities and that you release any claims against the Flying Sams parent organization, UCSD Flying Sams & all other chapters, including their directors, officers, agents, attorneys, and volunteers.
On each clinic trip, you will fill out a liability waiver that relates to you the same info as above, and releases the parties given above from for any injury, death, or property damage sustained in connection with any Flying Sams activity.
First, sign up for the mailing list:
Second, fill out the Membership Application
It is a quick, simple form but you are required to fill out the liability/photography waiver if you want to participate in our clinic trips. It only needs to be submitted once (not annually), and then you can pay the membership fees and participate in our club!
Third, get your membership fees taken care of:
Pay your $10-$40 membership fee (good for the entire academic year) Online ONLY.*
Membership comes with a shirt and/or scrubs which can be picked up at GBM. If you missed GBM you can pick them up at a pre-clinic meeting or the morning of a clinic trip.

Get your fees paid
Once you pay online, you will be considered a paid member and receive the corresponding benefits, including a Flying Sams t-shirt. T-shirt or scrubs can be picked up at GBM. Paid membership is good until the end of the academic year, in June, at the end of Spring Quarter at which point it resets for everyone.
Finally, get registered for Clinic Points
This system is how we manage your Clinic Points. Clinic points help us determine who to select to attend our clinic trips. You’re going to want to keep an eye on this, as it’s how we’re going to communicate with you about Clinic Points, and it also logs all interactions outside of clinic points. (like going to clinic, special notices, etc.). This is FREE to sign up. So please sign up here in order to accrue points.**
What happens now?
Participate in events (fundraisers, socials, publicity, food bank, GBM) and accrue points in CPM (Clinic Point Manager). Sign up for clinic trips when the sign-up email comes out. Show up to clinic. Rinse and Repeat.
*All fees are refundable within 30 days, and are non-refundable if you have attended a clinic trip
**Clinic point policy: At every clinic point event there should be a sign in sheet so we can input your clinic points (usually updated on the CPM site within a couple days). If you do not sign in/your points do not show up, you must submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org within 1 week from the clinic point event (no exceptions!).
