Scheduling a Rotation: We start to pencil in dates in February/March for every academic year and typically confirm rotations beginning of May – Mid-June.

Start Dates: We begin our student electives the third week of July for non-UCLA students. This is to give the faculty a chance to focus their attention on orienting our interns who start July 1st.

You receive part 1 when you email our student coordinator, once part one is approve you will receive part 2.  Once part 1 of your application is approved dates will be confirmed and PART 2 of the application starts. All documents needed for part 2 a minimum of 1 month prior to rotation.
