UCLA GME PHYSICIAN LICENSURE POLICY
The purpose of this policy is to set a standard for state of California medical licensure.
This policy applies to all ACGME-accredited training programs at UCLA.
All residents and fellows who participate in Post-Graduate training in Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs must comply with State of California Physician Licensure requirements. Requirements are located on either the California Medical Board website: https://www.mbc.ca.gov/Licensing/ or Osteopathic Medical Board website: https://www.ombc.ca.gov/.
Residents and fellows will be notified when they commence training that their appointment will be contingent upon compliance with California physician licensure requirements.
Residents and fellows who fail to meet California physician licensure requirements by the start date of their training program will not be appointed. For trainees enrolled in ACGME accredited programs at UCLA, failure to comply with California physician licensure requirements will result in administrative action per the Academic Due Process Policy.
Training programs are required to notify the California Medical Board or Osteopathic Board in the event of a change in status for trainees working under a PTL within 30 days of the event, including but not limited to resignation, termination, or any disruption in training.
