Who We Are

We recruit and train residents chosen from a pool of the most gifted applicants from medical and osteopathic schools. To date, the program has graduated hundreds of family physicians. We have a culturally diverse and well-rounded faculty, featuring specializations in addiction medicine, adolescent medicine, women's health, dermatology and global health. Through our program and graduates, we have established a vital presence in the community in our more than 40 years of operation. We are proud recipients of multiple grants recognizing our commitment to excellence and allowing us to implement innovative programs and the latest technologies to benefit our patients and our physicians-in-training.

How We Serve

Through our community partnerships, we take the lead in providing a medical home for many of Glendale's indigent, medically undeserved populations and uninsured children.

In addition, we offer outstanding maternity care and obstetrical training. We have integrated OB-GYN residency trained faculty enthusiastic about teaching Family Practice residents, and three of our core faculty have active OB privileges. Our program was also the first to sponsor the Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO) training course on the West Coast.
