Advancing health and education
What makes UC Davis special?
The culture, hands down, is unmatched. There isn’t a group of like-minded individuals from a diverse background anywhere else that have the same mission, which is to treat our patients in a holistic and culturally sensitive manner and to upkeep cultural humility.Tyler Carcamo, 1st year resident, surgery
The people at UC Davis have become a second family to me. I know that my fellow co-residents and faculty have my back and will support me as I explore and pursue my goals. I have no doubt that the friendships and mentorships formed here will last a lifetime.Daphne Olivia Darmawan, 2nd year resident, pediatrics
My critical skills were definitely sharpened more through UC Davis guiding me to think about things outside of a medical problem. I’m constantly thinking beyond the health issue, asking questions like: "Does my patient have running water?" and "What are their resources to afford medication?"Kayla Medina, School of Nursing Class of 2018, family nurse practitioner program
You choose UC Davis to belong to a diverse and inclusive community. You choose UC Davis because we support each other and elevate each other's voices. You choose UC Davis because we are family.Joseph Kim, 4th year resident, internal medicine and psychiatry
