Application Process & Contact Information

Hospitalist Fellowship Program Banner

Dear Applicants,

Thank you for your interest in UCLA Pediatric Hospital Medicine! In order to provide an equitable review of all applicants, our program has taken guidance from the APPD and CoPS and will commit to the following for this match cycle:

  • Perform a holistic review of applications, recognizing that access to different clinical, research, extracurricular, work, and other experiences vary significantly at baseline, and are further impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Recognize that residents may have experienced non-traditional rotations during the pandemic, including virtual learning experiences and on-line educational programming.
  • Offer virtual interviews to ALL applicants including local ones, to minimize the health risks of traveling during this coronavirus pandemic and to provide a more equitable structure for applicants and programs since some areas are disproportionately more affected by COVID-19 and some applicants are disproportionately impacted by the health and financial ramifications of COVID-19.

We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to reviewing your application. Thank you for your commitment to clinical and educational excellence during this unprecedented time.
