UCLA is committed to training physicians from all backgrounds to be best prepared to care for a multicultural patient population. We strive to create a learning and working environment that is inclusive and supportive of all of our trainees, including those coming from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the field of medicine.
Resident and Fellow Communities
We believe that together we are stronger and thus focus our efforts on collaborating across our various training programs to build community. The GME Subcommittee on Equity and Diversity Inclusion was created as part our Office’s mission to bring together faculty and housestaff at various levels of training to enhance efforts surrounding recruitment, retention and reaching back.
MINORITY HOUSESTAFF ORGANIZATION (MHO)
MHO aims to recruit, develop and advance physicians from historically under-represented racial and ethnic groups in medicine, as well as advocate for the communities that helped raise them.
Ongoing independent initiatives between UCLA underrepresented in medicine (URM) residents and medical students dedicated to building community and promoting excellence among URM physicians-in-training.
California’s #1-ranked hospital, affiliate training sites, and the fact that Los Angeles offers one of the most diverse patient populations in the country mean there is simply no better place to hone your practice of medicine than here at UCLA.
Road to Residency
This annual program gives medical students the opportunity to learn about residency programs at UCLA, meet residents and faculty of historically underrepresented backgrounds, and engage with leadership from multiple departments.
