Family Medicine - About

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency Website for Kaweah Delta Health Care District (KDHCD) in Visalia, California. We are a brand new Family Medicine Residency in the great Central Valley of California located about 40 miles south of Fresno and about 70 miles north of Bakersfield in Tulare County.

We are based in a large community hospital and are committed to growing a state-of-the-art teaching center in medically underserved Tulare County. Effective July 2011, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) granted institutional accreditation to KDHCD. Accreditation was granted to the Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine Programs effective July 2012. Both programs recently completed their first NRMP Match and look forward to welcoming house staff on July 1, 2013. The Psychiatry Residency Program has just received accreditation and will interview candidates in the fall for their first class scheduled to begin July 2014. The General Surgery and Transitional Year Programs are anticipated to follow in 2015.

The Family Medicine Center is part of KDHCD’s rural clinic system and is actively caring for patients from the rural, medically underserved communities of Exeter, Woodlake, Farmersville, Three Rivers and Ivanhoe as well as many patients from Visalia.

You will enjoy working with a team of outstanding Family Physicians with over 100 years of combined experience in the field of Family Medicine. You will be equipped to practice anywhere, anytime and with anyone.

Our Family Medicine faculty is joined by enthusiastic specialists in Emergency Medicine, Psychiatry, General Surgery, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine and its subspecialties. All are eager to help equip you to become a fully qualified Family Physician.
