Welcome to the Family
Medicine Residency Program website at Kaweah Delta Health Care District (KDHCD)
in Visalia, California. We are a new
Family Medicine program in the great Central Valley of California located about
40 miles south of Fresno and approximately 70 miles north of Bakersfield.
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, KDHCD was granted
institutional accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical
Education (ACGME). Additionally, accreditation was granted to the Family
Medicine and Emergency Medicine Programs effective July 2012 - each of whom
welcomed their first class of residents in July 2013. When at full complement, the Family Medicine
Program will have a total of eighteen residents. Accreditation was also recently awarded to
the Psychiatry Residency Program which welcomed its first residents in June 2014,
and the Transitional Year Program which will be interviewing for its first
class to begin in 2015. A General
Surgery Program is planned for the near future.
