Our Family Medicine Residency Program
As one of the few teaching programs in the valley, Dignity Health Family Medicine Residency at Northridge (affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has educated family physicians for more than three decades. The 24 resident physicians spend three years training under board-certified family physicians who hold teaching appointments at UCLA and are members of the UCLA faculty. The Residency Program has graduated over 250 family physicians – many of whom stay to serve the greater Northridge community.
What is a Resident Physician?
After earning a medical degree, a physician begins residency. Resident physicians are doctors who are completing their training in a particular specialty. Our resident physicians are furthering their practice knowledge within both a clinic and hospital setting on the Northridge campus.
Why Family Medicine Residency?
Evidence shows that patients who have a family medicine physician will be healthier because of the relationship they have with their physician. Our program understands the importance of this relationship, which is why we are committed to creating an environment that empowers residents to become excellent family physicians. At the clinic our resident physicians will continue to hone their skills by caring for our patients under the mentorship and supervision of our staff physicians. Patients receive care and treatment plans created by both the staff/faculty physician and the resident physician.
