The program accepts applications only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) and all applicants must participate in the National Resident Matching Program.

Three letters of recommendation and a letter from the applicant’s internal medicine residency program director are required for the application to be considered complete.

If you are in clinical or other practice after residency training, we do recommend a letter of recommendation from your current employer, and other employers since the end of your training.

A program director’s evaluation summary, California Medical License and DEA are required prior to the beginning of fellowship.

The deadline for applications is August 31st, and interviews are held from mid-September through October.
