Serving the Community
Northridge is an urban community in the heart of San Fernando Valley divided into 34 neighborhoods. We are located in the middle of the San Fernando Valley, a vibrant cosmopolitan setting. People come to the area come from many different cultures and backgrounds.
In our residency program, your education is enriched by the opportunity to serve a wide ranging population, including the neediest. Our Northridge Family Practice Center has a NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition.
In keeping with the Mission, Vision and Values of Northridge Hospital, the Residency Program seeks to be an integral part of our community members beyond their visits to the Family Practice Center. In an effort to impact the health of these individuals, Residents participate in several Outreach Programs catering to the needs of local school children, the elderly and those who would otherwise be without care.
Third year residents can volunteer as medical staff at this summer camp for children with diabetes during their elective rotations. Residents are involved in the day-to-day management of each campers needs as diabetics.
We have partnered with Northridge Middle School and their Explorers program through the Boy Scouts of America. “Exploring is a unique career exploration program for young men and women ages 10 - 20. The program provides students with an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with professionals already working in those fields. You get hands-on experience to determine whether or not a particular career field is right for you. You develop valuable networking contacts with professionals working in your selected career fields, and you get to know other youth with your same interests and aspirations.”
We provide the Northridge Middle School an exploring opportunity with our residents and have created a series with topics such as “Ask the Doctor” and participate in monthly/quarterly activities. We end the series with our Annual Mini Medical School workshop where students of the program attend a workshop and receive a “Diploma” from mini medical school.
Residents participate in multidisciplinary rounds and care for patients at a skilled nursing facility located within blocks of the hospital, where one of our faculty serves as Medical Director.
