Our program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and only accepts applicants through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We require the following documents:

California-Specific Requirements

International medical graduates (IMGs) who wish to pursue post-graduate training in California may have specific requirements. You can obtain further information from the Medical Board of California.

Visa Status

The University of California only accepts J-1 visas for international applicants. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must provide proof of your visa or residency status. If you have a current J-1 visa, you will also need a current ECFMG certificate.

F-1 Visas

F-1 visas must be issued by a U.S. medical school to be accepted by the University of California. The university cannot issue H-1 visas for international medical graduates.

All interviews will be conducted remotely via Zoom. Below is a typical interview day schedule.

  • 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.: Program Overview by Chief Residents
    • This session introduces our program, where our chief residents offer insights and an overview of what you can expect.
  • 9:35 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Three or Four Interviews by Faculty and Residents
    • Each interview will last approximately 20 minutes.
    • Breaks are scheduled in between to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience.

We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to receiving your application. Please reach out if you have any questions.
