Application Deadlines and Process

Applications to the UCLA IMG Program are accepted year-round. Please note that there is no single “start date” for the program. When you start the program, and how quickly you move through it to completion, will be determined by a number of factors including your own readiness, prior preparation or exam experience, the timeliness of obtaining your necessary certifications, as well as the pre-determined schedules for the USMLE exams and the National Resident Match Program deadlines.

Please ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements and that your medical school is recognized by the Medical Board of California before downloading and submitting an application form.

Applications must be submitted by mail, along with a check for $75.00 payable to “UC Regents”. All applications are reviewed by an advisory panel for finalist selection. All finalist applicants will be asked to interview with the Program Co-Directors before a final admission decision is rendered.
