Family Medicine

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency Program website at Kaweah Health 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. Kaweah Health's Family Medicine Residency program can be located in ERAS and NRMP using the following name: [1200500714] Kaweah Delta Health Care District (KDHCD) Program (Family Medicine).

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. Kaweah Health 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 is now at full complement as 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 Kaweah Health’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.
