Given the current pandemic, medical student rotations are limited this year. We appreciate your patience for response times during this time.


We offer both Ambulatory and Inpatient elective rotations for fourth year students attending LCME and AOA accredited medical schools.

  • Students see patients in the Family Practice Center, and have the opportunity to take part in the multiple Specialty Clinics in our office – including Dermatology, Podiatry, Nutrition, Ultrasound, Sports Medicine and Surgery Clinics.
  • Attend daily noon conferences and participate in monthly educational workshops with the residents

Inpatient Rotation

  • Students serve as a member of the Medicine Team, working alongside the residents and hospitalist attendings, rounding daily on patients in the hospital
  • Attend Cardiology and other Specialty Rounds each week, daily noon conferences, and participate in monthly educational workshops with the residents.

Length: Rotations are usually scheduled for a minimum of 3 or a max of 4 weeks.

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.
