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 which is quickly
growing into a state-of-the-art teaching center in medically underserved Tulare
County. KDHCD was granted institutional accreditation by the
Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in July 2011. Five
residency programs were since accredited – Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine,
Psychiatry, Surgery, and Transitional Year - and have all welcomed residents to
the District. The Family Medicine
Residency is now at full complement with a total of eighteen residents – six at
each program level.
A newly constructed Family Medicine Center, adjacent to the hospital,
was opened in the fall of 2014. It is
part of KDHCD’s community clinic system and is actively caring for patients
from throughout Tulare County.
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.
Should you meet our criteria, we encourage you to apply to
our program in the fall through ERAS as we begin accepting applications for
interviews for the next incoming class.
