Family and Community Medicine Curriculum

Our residency program is designed to engage residents in the breadth and depth of family medicine. Residents are rooted in our home academic and FQHC-based continuity clinics and experience fast-paced, complex care provided in inpatient settings at UC Davis and Mather VA hospitals.  We encourage our residents to get involved in the many leadership, community health, medical education, and research opportunities we have to offer.
