LLIECHE stands for Loma Linda-Inland Empire Consortium for Healthcare Education and is an association between various healthcare organizations in the area. It offers the opportunity for residents to train in the setting of a university program combined with a community hospital setting. We are still part of Loma Linda University.
Interviews will be offered to competitive candidates only after completion of the ERAS application. Interviews are scheduled for six Mondays from November to December.

Our graduates currently practice in private, forensic, academic, and community settings. Many of our residents have entered further academic training through fellowships, and out of those who apply for fellowship 100% have matched within the last 5 years.
If matched at LLIECHE, applicants will be required to complete a criminal background check and drug testing prior to becoming eligible for clinical responsibilities as part of our institution hiring policies.
Applications need to be submitted by the last Thursday in November
Do you require U.S. clinical experience and, if so, does it have to be inpatient experience? (Or do you accept patient care in an outpatient setting?)
We do not have a cut-off score, and we allow 3 attempts.
Do you require Step 3 to be passed prior to beginning residency, and if not, when does it need to be completed by?
We do not require Step 3 to be completed prior to entering our residency program. It is strongly encouraged to take Step 3 by December of the PGY-1 year as the cost of this exam will be reimbursed by LLIECHE if Step 3 is passed by this date. It is expected that our PGY-1’s take Step 3 by the end of the 1st year. Step 3 must be passed before entering the 4th year, otherwise the resident will not be allowed to continue on to 4th year per California state law.
We typically offer anywhere from 7-8 positions.
Absolutely! We have several DO’s in our program currently and we accept COMLEX scores in lieu of USMLE scores.
