Each year we provide two residents a learning experience that blends core rotations with longitudinal rotations. Six, week-long core rotations provide residents experiences to learn by integrating multiple services within a single core. By blending the core rotation experience with a longitudinal rotation, this structure offers a realistic learning opportunity that teaches time management skills. Our program year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30 each year.
We are affiliated with University of the Pacific, Simpson University, and the University of California - Davis and serve as a training site for pharmacy IPPE/APPE student, nursing students, and a family medicine residency.
