\\\Riverside GME Program \\\

Program Director Welcome

I would like to personally welcome you to the start of our new Family Medicine Residency Program in Southern California! The Riverside Community Hospital/ University of California Riverside School of Medicine (RCH/UCR SOM) Family Medicine Residency Program will welcome our first class of residents in July 2017. We are excited to recruit those interested in exploring the possibilities in a new training program and working with the underserved population in the Inland Empire of southern California. Our experienced academic faculty from the University of California Riverside School of Medicine is looking forward to expanding primary care in our community in partnership with our first class of residents.

GME is a strong and crucial part of the expansion of our hospital and the focus of its future. We will have the strong support of our community partner, Borrego Health, to train our residents in caring for the under-served population. Our Family Medicine Practice site developed in partnership with Borrego Health, a Federally Qualified Health Center, is a brand new clinic built for our residency program.

The UCR School of Medicine represents the newest expansion of the UC medical education system, joining a prestigious group of medical educators in our state. As an affiliated family medicine residency program for UCR SOM, we look forward to a long tradition of academic excellence and high quality patient care. The core faculty of our residency are Health Science Clinical Professors within the UCR School of Medicine. This means that our residents will have access to academic research support and the opportunity to mentor UCR SOM students throughout their training.

At the RCH/UCR Family Medicine Residency you will thrive amid university level health care with community-focused academic faculty in a friendly and supportive environment focused on physician wellness.
