Graduate Medical Education
Welcome to Kaweah Delta's Graduate Medical Education program. We're
committed to providing you with the very best teaching and clinical experience.
Our program will fully prepare you for the independent practice of medicine
or the pursuit of additional training. From the beginning, we seized the
opportunity to design and implement systems to ensure our GME programs
are comprehensive and fully integrated.
We are located in California’s Central Valley footsteps from the
Sierra Nevada. With a population of over 130,000, Visalia is perfectly
sized to provide all of the amenities but none of the hassles of urban
living. Within a 2-3 hour drive, one can visit the San Francisco Bay Area,
the Monterey Peninsula, the Central California Coast and Los Angeles.
Additionally, the cost of housing is a fraction of that in other areas
of the state. We offer compensation and benefits that are highly competitive.
We have the best facilities and resources to support house staff and faculty
engaged in Graduate Medical Education. The District has also invested
in expanding our campus with the creation of the Acequia Wing. This expansion
provides our community with brand-new surgical suites, laboratories, and
a long list of technological advances.
We are proud to announce that Kaweah Delta Medical Center has received
an A in hospital safety by Leapfrog for the Fall 2016 Hospital Safety
Score. This gold standard rating for patient safety indicates how well
hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, and injuries, as well
as considers patient satisfaction. An "A" from Leapfrog, the
nation`s leading patient safety experts, recognizes the consistent improvements
made in quality of care and patient safety.
