UCLA International Medical Graduate Program

An innovative program at The University of California, Los Angeles educates international medical graduates from Spanish speaking countries to pass the United States Medical Licensing Exams and apply for family medicine residency positions. After completing their residency training, program participants must then practice family medicine in medically underserved California communities for at least 24 months. Applicants must legally reside in California, have graduated from medical school less than five years before enrollment, and demonstrate proficiency in English and Spanish.
