Virtual Clerkship Experience

While we at UCLA Ronald Reagan/Olive View Emergency Medicine Program initially created this experience as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are happy to announce we will be continuing this virtual 2-week experience for this upcoming academic year.  

While we would be thrilled to have you rotate in person, we recognize that not all students are able to afford or cannot attend our in-person rotation for other reasons. That said, the goal of the experience is to promote student interest in applying to the UCLA Ronald Reagan/Olive View Emergency Medicine Residency Program by introducing students to many of our residents and faculty, our interests, and overall give you a better idea of who we are!
