Application Process

Application Process

The faculty, fellows, and residents of Harbor-UCLA Department of Emergency Medicine pride ourselves on being a family of caring, engaged, and supportive professionals that teach, encourage, and mentor our newest members. We welcome applicants who come from groups traditionally underrepresented in medicine such as underrepresented minorities, LGBTQI individuals, and first generation college graduates. We seek to recruit intellectually curious, compassionate, and highly motivated individuals from different backgrounds, with a wide variety of skill sets and life experiences, who feel as honored to care for our underserved community as we do.
