Medical Student Program
Kaweah Delta Health Care District ( KDHCD) is a designated Level III Trauma
Center with a new helipad and a busy emergency department with over 90,000
annual patient visits. We are a large institution with eight campuses.
Our West Campus includes a busy, acute 50-bed inpatient Mental Health
Hospital. We have a new constructed Family Medicine Center and are currently
expanding our Emergency Department.
Medical students who elect to perform their rotations with us will benefit
from the diverse patient poplulation. Our faculty is motivated to teach
and we offer more one-on-one time with attending physicians than tradtional
academic centers. This translate to more practical, useable knowledge
at the bedside to prepare you for residency.
We have strong residency programs in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine,
General Surgery, Psychiatry, Anesthesiology and Transitional Year. Their
success is due to dedicated faculty who improve their programs continously,
frequently based on residents input.
We provide a robust educational experience to medical students performing
rotations in both core and electives in a wide variety of medical surgical
specialties. Each core and elective rototation has dedicated didactic
sessions and multidisclipnary educational sessions dedicated to medical
student education. All our students, regardless of rotation, will have
the opportunity to participate in our community outreach programs. We
want you to experience the partnerships that Kaweah Delta has developed
to better serve and advocate for our community projects; Health Promotora
Program, Good Samirtan Free Clinic, Walk with the Doc, Stop the Bleed
and many more opportunites.
Come Join Our Medical Student Team! We look foward to having you!
