Residency Program

Welcome to the UCLA-Ronald Reagan/Olive View Emergency Medicine Residency Program! Our program is committed to providing the highest-quality medical education by exposing trainees to a diverse and wide breadth of experiences. This is paired with a novel “liberal arts” approach in which ample elective time and guidance is provided to allow development of depth within areas of interest in Emergency Medicine. We primarily work in three different Emergency Departments: Ronald Reagan-UCLA Medical Center, LA County Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, and Antelope Valley Medical Center. Each site is uniquely selected for the very different patient populations, pathology, and educational opportunities - together they deliver a balanced and complete Emergency Medicine training experience. Through training at these complementary, high-volume clinical sites, our graduates find themselves ready and prepared to work anywhere.

Our weekly conferences reflect the broad nature of our training. From Journal Club at a faculty member's home to EMS day on a sunny LA beach, our learning experiences are diverse and complementary. As future leaders, our residents are often involved at our medical school, in our residency, and our community. Whether it is a small group session teaching ultrasound to our medical students or working a medical tent in a local musical festival, we love to get involved! We are proud of our many faculty members who have gone on to be leaders in the field of medical education pioneering educational formats including EM-RAP, #FOAMed, Emergency Medicine Foundationa, and much more.
