Most of our rotations only accept applications via the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO). International students can apply for a rotation through the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA international visiting student website.
Rotations are only offered at UCLA-affiliated Kaiser Permanente locations (which include Los Angeles and Woodland Hills only), and students must meet UCLA eligibility requirements for international visiting medical students. For more information please visit: www.medstudent.ucla.edu/visitingstudents

Unfortunately, Kaiser Permanente Southern California is not structured to offer observerships or international medical student rotations.
