The UCLA GI Fellowship Program offers opportunities for candidates who are interested in pursuing clinical and research goals. There are two tracks: the clinical scholar track (3 years) and the research scientist track (4+ years). For the 2023 application season, we will be accepting applications for both tracks.
The UCLA GI Fellowship Program is a part of the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applicants should apply through ERAS as well as register with the NRMP. As mentioned, our ERAS page will offer both the clinical academic track (3 years) and the research scientist track (4+ years) this year. Refer to Our Program page for more information on the difference between both tracks.
