News & Updates


The National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) at UCLA is a two-year, interprofessional and interdisciplinary post-doc fellowship program. Our two-year program is designed for both doctorally trained nurses and physicians. Inspired by the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program (CSP), which for more than 40 years fostered the development of physician-leaders able to transform health and healthcare, the university proudly launched the new UCLA National Clinician Scholars Program in 2016.
