The Inaugural Class! 2019 - 2020

Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Family Medicine Residency logo with three trees framed by two leaves beneath themAdventist Health Ukiah Valley is offering a “stand alone” (unopposed) Family Medicine Residency Program for 6 residents per year totaling 18 residents over three years. Our program is focused on the full scope of rural family medicine. Residents will be based at the University of California Davis for PGY1 and at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley, the sole community hospital and rural health clinics in Mendocino County, for PGY2 and PGY3.

To give our resident physicians a strong urban and academic experience that complements their rural experience, the PGY1 year will be focused on inpatient training primarily at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. This first year with our academic affiliate, the UC Davis Department of Family and Community Medicine, will include thirteen 4 week block rotations as follows: 6 Adult Medicine blocks, 1 Pediatric block, 2 OB blocks, 2 Emergency Medicine blocks (adult and pediatric), 1 Critical Care block and 1 vacation block. All 3 years emphasize Behavioral and Population Health and the Underserved.

We are proud to be the 8th member of the University of California Davis School of Medicine Network of Family Medicine Residency Programs.
