We are dedicated to nurturing the unique talents, skills, and passions our residents bring to the program, to help each individual achieve his/her most ambitious personal and professional goals.

L.A. Care Health Plan, as part of its Elevating the Safety Net Initiative, has supported funding for two new residency positions in the Department of Pediatrics. Through the L.A. Care Elevating the Safety Net Residency Support Program the department was able to expand its number of positions and strengthen care for vulnerable and low-income communities. UCLA is among five institutions chosen by L.A. Care Health Plan’s program. The awards support primary care pediatricians in Los Angeles County to directly address the physician shortage in the region. The residency award’s goal is retaining well-trained pediatricians to provide care in Southern California’s traditionally underserved communities. Awarding of these residencies took place in summer 2020.
