Program Details

Program Highlights and/or Unique Curriculum Components (i.e. Fellowship Opportunities):
An “unopposed” (stand-alone) Family Medicine Residency Program for 6 residents per year totaling 18 residents over three years. This program is focused on full scope rural family medicine in which residents will become dept at managing complex patients with interesting pathology, oftentimes without the assistance of specialists.

Residents will receive excellent hands-on training with robust Procedure and Point-of-Care Ultrasound curriculum. There will also be an emphasis on Behavioral and Population Health and care for the underserved as residents will work closely with our Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Street Medicine team. Our goal is to train Family Medicine physicians who are well prepared to practice rurally and provide care to patients in any care setting. To give resident physicians a strong urban and academic experience that complements their rural experience, 4 months of inpatient training will be held at University of California Davis and the Sacramento VA. This training will focus on Adult/Pediatric Inpatient Medicine. Housing will be provided during these rotations.

Fun Facts:
Ukiah is a unique small town that charms you with its rich character, arts, vineyards and natural surroundings. It offers a little bit of everything for everyone, from outdoor activities and an historic downtown, all of which is surrounded by lush vineyards and rolling green hills. Here, it is eclectic, quaint, unconventional and a place where freedom of expression is a tradition and a way of life. Sunset Magazine recently profiled Ukiah, praising it’s “19th century architecture, charming tree-lined neighborhoods, and laid-back vibe.”

Named California’s best small town, the sixth best in the entire country, Ukiah enjoys 300 days of sunshine each year. Located just two hours north of San Francisco and 45 minutes from the Pacific Coast, there is undoubtedly a reason why so many families feel passionate about calling this home.
