Merced Native Takes Reins as Medical Director

After two months on the job, UC Merced’s first full-time medical director has already entrenched himself in campus life and understanding student needs.

Dr. Brandon Boggs, a Merced native, has practiced emergency medicine for the past 10 years, including seven as medical director for an emergency department in Oakdale. Early in his career he worked as a family practitioner in private practice with a cardiologist and pulmonologist, and served as medical director of large nursing and rehabilitation center.

Students Flex Entrepreneurial Muscle in Mobile App Challenge

More than two dozen students are stretching their imagination and building entrepreneurial skills in the first-ever Mobile App Challenge at UC Merced.

Representing each of the university’s three schools, 28 students in seven teams are developing innovative and custom “apps,” or applications, for wireless devices. Most teams are tackling students’ real-life problems, such as tracking bus schedules or getting an early crack at classes during registration.
