Kaweah Health currently has ACGME accredited residency programs in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Transitional Year, Surgery, Psychiatry and a fellowship program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. All PGY-1 Psychiatry Residents complete three months in Family Medicine and one month in Emergency Medicine. However, any resident on a given service will be afforded the same treatment, responsibilities and privileges as any other resident at the same level and experiences, regardless of specific residency. We encourage close working synergies between residents of all programs. It is the commitment of the Office of Graduate Medical Education to avoid conflicts between services and to maximize educational experiences for all of our residents by seamless integration of our programs where they intersect.
