Eligibility and Requirements
Thank you for your interest in the UCLA Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship! Please note that in order to apply to our program you must be in the final year of residency in emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, or pediatrics.
The UCLA Sports Medicine Fellowship Program participates in the Primary Care Sports Medicine Specialty Match organized by the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Registration with the NRMP is therefore required. To register please call (202) 828-0676 or visit the NRMP website.
Starting in 2013, the UCLA Sports Medicine Fellowship adopted the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please refer to the ERAS Fellowship Documents Office (EFDO) for details on how to register and complete the application visit their website.
Please note that should you match with our program, you will be expected to obtain a California medical license by September 30, 2022. Currently, the processing time varies between 6 and 12 months. As such, we highly recommend that you take the USMLE Step 3 prior to the NRMP rank deadline. If you are a foreign medical graduate and do not have a California medical license, please contact Carole Barrinuevo, the program coordinator, for clarification of your eligibility for our program. For details regarding licensure in California please refer to the California Medical Board website.
