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. Six residency programs
were since accredited – Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Psychiatry,
Surgery, Transitional Year, and Anesthesia - and have all welcomed residents
to the District. The Family Medicine Residency was recently granted an
increase in complement by the ACGME to become a 7-7-7 program.
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 physicians in the field
of Family Medicine. You will become 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.
