PIH Health Family Medicine Residency Program


The PIH Health Family Medicine Residency Program is an unopposed program located in Whittier, California. Our mission is to provide our residents with a rich, broad-based, and multi-disciplinary graduate medical education that is built on a culturally responsive foundation. Our residents train in, and provide medical care to, underserved socio-economic populations and multi-cultural communities, establishing their roles as community health providers. By presenting them with these targeted and fundamental learning experiences throughout their training, our objective is to guide and inspire our residents to continue to provide the same type of outreach and medical services in similarly underserved multi-cultural communities upon graduation, when they begin their independent practice of medicine.

Our program offers an exemplary model of working in relationships between members of a collaborative health care team that includes a large number of hospital and ambulatory specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, behavioral scientists, and community partners. We also offer very generous salary and benefits.
