BUSM LISTSERV EMAILS/ ELECTRONIC MAILING LIST

As a medical student, you are automatically subscribed to your class year electronic mailing list upon arrival at BUSM to stay informed of class notices, class meetings, events, and to receive communications from the BUSM administration.

Each BUSM student class has an electronic mailing list: BUSM-2019-list, BUSM-2018-list, etc. You are required to follow the Conditions of Use Policy: E-mail Communications BUSM “Boston University Conditions of Use and Policy on Computing Ethics.”

In order to send an email to a listserv, you need to gain access. If you would like to be added to any other class listserv at any given time, then follow the instructions below for subscribing and sending to the mailing lists.
