2020-2021 UPDATE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, we have suspended our sub-internship program. We hope to offer this program again for the 2021-2022 Application Cycle, as it has always been an excellent opportunity for us to get to know the future leaders in Head and Neck Surgery, and for applicants to take an in-depth look at our cherished program. Please feel free to reach out to our medical education team at HNMedEd@ucla.edu for any questions that you may have.
The UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery offers Sub-Internship positions to 4th year visiting medical students at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (SU-SU490.01). Students participate in active outpatient services in Head and Neck Surgery as well as in the care of patients seen in the operating room.
