Program Details

Program Highlights and/or Unique Curriculum Components (i.e. Fellowship Opportunities):
We are a 13-13-13 program at a safety-net hospital in the San Francisco Bay area. Our program emphasizes acute and ambulatory care; family & reproductive health; and providing care in low resource settings. Family physician faculty teach through 1:1 mentorship and leadership. We value training family physicians to have broad skills and a desire to bring high quality care to all who need it, in any setting.

Contra Costa Family Medicine Residency Program has over 50 faculty members that are directly involved with resident teaching, representing many disciplines throughout the residency program.

Each service has "registrars" - most are Family Medicine Physicians with additional training and experience, whether OB, pediatrics, intensive care or surgery
