UCLA's International Physician Observership Program Details

The UCLA Center for World Health is charged with overseeing the International Physician Observership Program.

Federal regulations prevent observers from having patient care responsibilities or involvement in any form of volunteer research.

All health professionals participating in the UCLA International Physician Observership Program are required to comply with all UCLA Health and David Geffen School of Medicine policies.

Each visiting physician can observe patient care activities for no longer than three months, and must be self-supporting for the duration of their stay.
