Graduate Medical Education is one of the highest priorities of our academic department. Our UCLA Emergency Medicine faculty teach at three separate residency programs, and offer a variety of fellowships for subspecialty training, and valuable experiences for medical students.
There are three separate Emergency Medicine residency programs with an academic affiliation to UCLA. Each functions independently and offers unique and excellent training experiences. Combined, these programs graduate 37 residents per year, with a total of more than 140 residents currently in training.
UCLA and our academic affiliates offer a number of different fellowship opportunities for additional training in subspecialties of emergency medicine, including administration, education, research, ultrasound, informatics, social/global medicine, pediatric emergency medicine, and critical care. Many of the fellowships offer a one-year experience, or two years with a degree in a relevant discipline.
