PIH Health Family Medicine Residency Program

residency 2017

The PIH Health Family Medicine Residency Program is affiliated with the UC Irvine School of Medicine. It is an unopposed program that serves the communities of Los Angeles & Orange counties as well as the San Gabriel Valley. Our mission is to provide our residents with a rich, broad-based, and multidisciplinary graduate medical education that is built on a culturally competent foundation. Our residents provide medical care to underserved socio-economic populations and multi-cultural communities where they establish their roles as community health providers. By presenting our residents with these targeted and fundamental learning experiences throughout their training, we aim to guide and inspire them to continue to provide the same type of outreach and medical services in similar communities upon graduation.

Our program offers an exemplary model of working as a member of a collaborative healthcare team that includes hospital and ambulatory specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, behavioral scientists, and community partners. Our residents work directly with attending physicians in numerous specialties, allowing for exceptional and personalized training opportunities. We also offer a variety of benefits.
