M.D. Program

Welcome to ACE-PC

 “ACE-PC is definitely an intensive approach to medical education and physician training, and the need for more primary care physicians is so crucial that being able to provide a speedier pathway for highly motivated students makes a lot of sense. With health-care reform and more people having coverage, the need for additional physicians is greater than ever before.  Medical schools simply have to produce more generalists, and our ACE-PC program is a great way to increase that vital part of the health-care workforce.  The unique partnership between UC Davis and Kaiser Permanente allows students to immerse in Kaiser’s integrated health care system  and patient centered  medical home to promote  seamless integration between medical education and medical practice.”
