Program Details

Program Highlights and/or Unique Curriculum Components (i.e. Fellowship Opportunities):

Kaiser Permanente Orange County Family Medicine Program (KPOC FMRP) is a full spectrum, community based suburban training program. Located in the heart of Orange County in Santa Ana, the Family Medicine Center population is nearly 50% Hispanic and the local community surpasses that amount. This allows for a wide variety of diversity in patient population, both ethnically and soci-economically.

KPOC FMRP is an unopposed program which allows for individualized training and development of resident independence. The program focuses on resident education vs. service to the institution. When residents are working on the inpatient rotations at the home institution, they do not have to compete with any other residency for procedures. When they rotate on specialty rotations, they work "one on one" with a specialist. This helps to ensure that residents receive individualized training.

KPOC FMRP offers a 1-2 year Community Medicine Fellowship for one board eligible family medicine physician. This physician works closely with our community partner clinic, Lestonnac Free Clinic and with other community organizations such as Latino Health Access.

At KPOC FMRP, we insure a robust curriculum of required rotations, and we also support the diversity of our residents' interests in the broad specialty of family medicine. The program offers a curriculum with flexible elective time, especially in the PGY-2 and PGY-3 years so residents can pursue areas that they are passionate about. Residents concentrate on areas such as: Community Medicine, Addiction Medicine, Lifestyle Medicine, Global Health and Advocacy. They have the full support of the program and time to do so.

Faculty Composition:
Kaiser Permanente Orange County Family Medicine Residency has 15 Core Faculty members: 1 Psychologist, 1 Psychiatrist, 1 Pediatrician and 12 Family Medicine Attendings. We also work with over 20 different adjunct Family Medicine Physicians who precept in the Family Medicine Center and teach residents in their offices. We have a variety of specialists and sub-specialists that the residents work with on an individual basis both in the inpatient and outpatient settings.
Spouse/Family Opportunities:
KPOC is a family oriented program. We embrace spouses and children of residents and treat them as part of our "family". The residents, spouses and their dependents enjoy a rich benefit package which includes the following: housing stipend, medical benefits, vision benefits, dental benefits, disability insurance, life insurance, and a savings plan. We always welcome families and children at all of our gatherings including retreats and "Monster Meetings" (organized fun that we have a few times a year for the residents and faculty).
Fun Facts:
  • KPOC FMRP was established over 25 years ago by Dr. Tim Munzing, who remains the beloved Program Director.
  • KPOC has a 100% Board Pass Rate
  • We have a Residency Retreat once a year where residents and faculty share a weekend of fun and bonding (we do super cool things like Cruises, wine tasting, and enjoying the amenities of local resorts)
  • KPOC FMRP has mandated wellness and bonding events called "Monster Meetings" at least 4 times a year where we participate in activities such as beach bonfires, go-cart racing, arrow tag, painting lessons, escape rooms and many, many more.
  • The residents have ample opportunity to participate in research projects as well as Practice Improvement/Quality Improvement projects and are able to use the robust resources of Kaiser Permanente.
  • Many graduates hold academic and leadership positions both within Kaiser Permanente and other institutions.
  • The residents work closely with the local community to provide medical care to underserved and uninsured patients
