Applications are accepted through ERAS. We recommend early completion of the ERAS application as the program starts reviewing applications immediately thereafter. Applicants must be board certified or eligible in internal medicine. Our program accepts candidates on H-1B and J-1 visas; however, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for positions on the T32 training grant. Minority applicants are encouraged to apply.
The interviews typically take place on select Fridays in September and October. The candidates attend the University Wide Endocrinology Conference in the morning, followed by 4-5 faculty interviews. This is followed by a tour of the Oakland hospitals and lunch with current fellows. The whole group meets with the division chief and program director in the afternoon. Additional interviews may be scheduled based on the candidates’ research interests.
For the 2020-2021 interview season, all interviews will be conducted virtually. Our chief fellows will be holding a virtual meet and greet the evening prior to the interview day. On the interview day, the candidates will virtually attend the division’s academic conferences in the morning followed by 3-4 faculty interviews. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis we will not be able to schedule any in person second look visits, but please do not hesitate to contact us through email for any additional information.
Our program participates in the Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP). The Fellowship selection committee determines the rank order list.
