Apply to the Clerkship

This popular UCLA elective tends to fill, especially during July to December, when emergency medicine bound students wish to have the UCLA-Ronald Reagan/Olive View Emergency Medicine experience. We do not finalize the schedule for the academic year until UCLA students have been scheduled. However, we encourage non-UCLA students to submit their application as soon as possible.

The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA electives are three weeks in duration. If you would like to do a four-week rotation, simply indicate your preferred dates on the application form and we will do our best to accommodate you.


Visiting US Medical Students: UCLA uses VSAS for US medical students. In addition to the standard VSAS application, please send a brief letter of intent to Mickey Murano, explaining your interest in the rotation, and career plans. This letter can be informal and does not have to be on letterhead, etc. Please note that our summer blocks are reserved for students planning a career in EM.

Thank you! We look forward to working with you!
