Our facilities

The Family Medicine Center at California Hospital is a traditional family medicine office practice where patients are seen by a team of family physicians, assisted by our psychologist and nursing team.

The Family Medicine Residency Program is committed to providing high-quality healthcare with convenient access to all members of the downtown community, with a focus on caring for the underserved members of our community. Patients are assigned to one doctor who provides care for the patient and the entire family. As much as possible, patients see the same physician on each visit.

  • First year residents spend one half-day in the FMC per week.
  • Second year residents spend two to three half-days in the FMC per week.
  • Third year residents spend three to six half-days in the FMC per week.

One or more members of the faculty is always assigned to precept in the Center, maintaining a ratio of 1 faculty for every 3 residents.

When FMC patients require hospitalization, the Family Medicine Inpatient Resident admits and supervises the care of that patient with input and involvement of the primary physician. Faculty members are involved in the teaching inpatient service.
