New Residents Begin! July 2018
July 2018 brought the first group of residents in two planned ACGME accredited residency programs (Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine). These programs and the entire development of GME at St Joseph’s – Stockton is in keeping with our deeply held mission to serve the heath care needs of the St. Joseph’s community and the greater Stockton area. The development of highly regarded residency training, medical student programs, scholarly work and research further fulfills the goal to provide outstanding health care and education in the city of Stockton and wider delta region. St. Joseph’s is in the midst of many improvements on multiple fronts— including but not limited to, a new fully integrated, enterprise wide electronic medical record system, expansion of clinical services, physical plant improvements, a new partnership with Kaiser Permanente, a rigorous academic affiliation with Touro University, California, and of course this most exciting new GME program.
