Application Process

We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Ten PGY1 positions are available each year. For consideration, your application must include at least three letters of recommendation, your school’s Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), a personal statement, and your scores on USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS.

Interviews with select applicants are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from October through January. The interview day includes an overview of the program, a tour of the Sepulveda VA and Olive View-UCLA training sites, and interviews with both faculty and residents. You will meet numerous current residents throughout your interview day and at an informal happy hour hosted by residents. Lunch will be provided.

Applicants are welcome to return for a second look after their interview day if they would like to further explore our didactics, training sites, and daily resident schedule. Please contact the program coordinator or chief residents to arrange your visit.

On occasion, PGY2 positions are available for applicants who have completed all California licensure requirements during their PGY1 year. Inquiries regarding PGY2 positions should be made directly to the program coordinator.
