Life After Residency

Class of 2021: 100% of residents matched into their top 2 choices in the Fellowship Match. 

The path to matching into fellowship starts early in residency. Incoming interns who have an interest in pursuing a fellowship or research are paired to a specialty mentor. These advisors, along with scheduled info sessions, provide guidance and support to all residents interested in fellowship. In the past 8 years, the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Internal Medicine program has consistently matched residents to their top fellowship programs. 

Dr. Caroline Ho matched to ID at Dartmouth 

Dr. Dean La Barba matched to GI at Kaiser Permanente LA. 

Dr. Jaclynn Levine matched to Rheumatology at Olive View. 

Dr. Brannen Liang matched to Pulmonary – Critical Care at USC. 

Dr. Rohith Nayak matched to Cardiology at Kaiser Permanente LA. 

Dr. Vivian Partida matched to Community Medicine Fellowship at Kaiser Permanente LA. 

Dr. Jennifer Chao will be completing her MPH as part of the joint IM-MPH program (no longer offered). 



Graduating Residents

Graduating residents not pursuing a fellowship secure a practice opportunity during their PGY-3 year. Many residents stay with Kaiser Permanente while others branch out to Cedars-Sinai, UCLA, community hospitals and private practice.
