The VA-UCLA Geriatrics Fellowship is strongly committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and believe that our program serves as an example for open dialogue, life-long learning, and compassionate quality care. We work with our colleagues in the UCLA Health System, including the Department of Medicine and the Graduate Medical Education office on efforts related to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Check out highlights from our GME Equity and Diversity Inclusion efforts and our Department of Medicine Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

We utilize a holistic review process when evaluating candidacy for our fellowship and we look for fellows who desire to improve health outcomes for older adults across diverse settings. Our curriculum includes an EDI lecture series. We are also fortunate to be associated with a Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) within the Department of Medicine.
