Given the need to conduct interviews safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA will use a two-part virtual interview process for the 2020-2021 application cycle:
PART 1: AAMC VITA Interview Tool
To further enhance our holistic review process, applicants will complete the Video Interview Tool for Admissions (VITA), administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The AAMC VITA was designed to complement our live virtual interview process.
Please note that the AAMC has complete administrative function of this tool. The DGSOM Admissions Office will access candidate’s final VITA video recording.
Some helpful information for candidates to review may be:
PART 2: DGSOM Virtual Interview Day
Candidates who are invited to interview will be contacted directly with details on scheduling, instructions, and recommendations. Candidates requiring accommodations should contact the Admissions Office following receipt of an invitation to interview.
Interviews are typically conducted from August through November or until the class is filled.
