GME Expansion Committee Submission and Meeting Dates

The Expansion Committee is comprised of UCLA Health and DGSOM Leadership who review requests for new programs, complement changes, and sponsorship changes. For any requests and more information, please contact the GME Office.

New Program Requests 

Step 1 - Complete the New Program Request and the Funding Documentation Template. Submit both forms to the GME Director for review by the Expansion Committee. All forms must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the scheduled committee meeting in order to be considered for review. Please contact the GME office for the date of the next Expansion Committee meeting.

Step 2 - The UCLA Expansion Committee reviews the overall rationale and financing/resources of the request. If approved by the committee, the request and supporting documentation is presented at the following GMEC meeting.

Step 3 - The UCLA GMEC assesses the educational content, impact and objectives of the request. If approved by the GMEC, applicants will be notified.

Step 4 - Programs may submit a request for the new program to the ACGME.

Requests to specific ACGME / RRC's must not be made until after approval by the Expansion Committee and the GMEC. No residents or fellows should be hired or made promises for positions until there has been approval by each group noted above.
