Thank you for your interest in the Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.



Qualified candidates must, at the time of application, be in one of the following categories:

1. US Citizen
2. US Permanent Resident
The Program does not accept J1 and H1B applicants.

Eligible applicants must have:

1. Completed at least 1.5 years of US ACGME-accredited residency training at the time of application submission
2. Taken and passed Parts 1 and 2 of the USMLE
3. Hold a current and valid California Medical License or, in lieu of a California Medical License, applied for a Postgraduate Training Authorization Letter (PTAL) through the California Medical Board if you have not received residency training in the United States. If a PTAL is required, you must one by the time interviews are concluded in order to be eligible to submit your name in the ranking. Please note that the PTAL takes approximately 60-90 days to receive so please apply early in the ERAS application process. If you have received residency training in the United States through an ACGME-accredited program, there should be no requirement for a PTAL.


Applicants must apply through ERAS as this is the mechanism through which the program will be reviewing, selecting, and matching candidates. The UCLA Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program is ERAS Program Code # 155-05-21-123. We are also listed on the AMA FRIEDA Online directory here.

Over 200 applicants apply annually. Of these, approximately 70 candidates are interviewed for 4-6 positions each year. Of these positions, one is generally designated as a Geriatric-Oncology slot and is not placed in the match. Candidates interested in the Geriatric-Oncology position, should indicate this in their personal statement. Please also refer to the Geriatrics Oncology website for further information. Candidates interested in the STAR program should refer to the STAR Program website for additional information on applying. Geri-Onc and STAR candidates may have additional interviews during the regular interview process.

Please contact us with any additional questions or for more information.
