For Our Applicants

Application Process: Harbor-UCLA Medical Center’s Neurology Residency program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). All applicants for residency positions must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS is an electronic service which will transmit the applicant’s information including the application for residency, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and supporting credentials to the residency director. The ERAS application can be downloaded from the following site:

Medical Licensure: Appointees will be required to present a California State Physicians and Surgeons Certificate before the completion of his/her PGY 2 year. Failure to obtain a license will result in dismissal from Los Angeles County Employment.

For Our Interviewees

We are very excited that you will be interviewing at Harbor-UCLA!  We cannot wait to meet you in person.  To help you arrive here more easily visit Harbor-UCLA campus map and Harbor-UCLA directions for more information.

You may also visit the Harbor-UCLA website where you will find extensive and useful information regarding the hospital and information from the GME office. If you have difficulties or questions, please contact Olga Alvarez. We are here to help make your visit a smooth and pleasant one.

On the day of your interview, we encourage you to allow ample time to find parking, and to report promptly to the location described in your email.

Please note that Bldg N-25 is located on Medical Foundation Drive and accessible from Normandie Ave (and NOT inside the hospital).

Once you arrive at our building, please call (310) 222-3897 and our secretary will escort you into the building. At that time, you will be given a badge so you may bypass security at the hospital, and also a packet with your itinerary and other important information.

We are looking forward to meeting with you in the near future.
