We plan for interview dates in September through January. Some COVID-era interviews may be on-line. We have not yet selected interview dates. If you are invited to interview for multiple tracks, the interviews may be over two days. Interviews will continue until positions are filled. Acceptances are on a rolling basis until individual positions are filled.
Candidates should include in their submission:
Candidates from foreign medical schools eventually must have a Postgraduate Training Authorization Letter (PTAL), also called a Letter of Evaluation, from the California Medical Board before we are able to offer them an offer of a position. Please contact the Board to start that process.
Before beginning the fellowship, all candidates must have completed satisfactorily a US ACGME accredited residency in Neurology or Child Neurology and a US ACGME accredited internship in medicine. Proof of completion must be submitted at the start of training.
UCLA is able to support J-1 visas only for the ACGME accredited years of our programs. Clinical instructor Intraoperative Monitoring positions are not eligible for these J-1 visas. UCLA does not provide support for training program applicants who are in the US on an H1B visa.
Fellows must hold an Unrestricted Medical license issued by the Medical Board of California six months before beginning their fellowship so as to process university onboarding. Please note that obtaining a California medical license may take six months or more from the time of filing the application with the Medical Board in Sacramento. Candidates must apply to the California Medical Board during the summer prior to beginning the fellowship and contact the medical board periodically to make sure the application is making its way through the system.
Any offer of a position is contingent upon actual issuance of an unrestricted medical license by the California Medical Board. Their address is: Medical Board of California.
