Incredible diversity of patients and care settings

including public, VA, and managed care (Kaiser Permanente)


diversitySacramento is one of the most ethnically and socially diverse cities in America.  Our residents primarily work at UC Davis, Kaiser, and Sacramento VA health systems, but also spend time at Sacramento County indigent care clinics and Dignity/Mercy health system clinics. Each clinic and hospital  has a different patient population and care system, offering tremendous learning opportunities. Simply put, seeing such variety of patients will make you a better doctor. 
 
Our residents gain an understanding of what it is like to practice in an academic teaching hospital, the VA health care system, a closed HMO model (Kaiser) and a community multispecialty group practice (Dignity).  This well-rounded experience prepares them for practice just about anywhere.
