Family Medicine Residency Program
With the help of donor support, John Muir Health has launched its first medical training program in affiliation with UCSF. The new Family Medicine Residency Program addresses two of the toughest challenges in health care today: the shortage of primary care doctors and gaps in access to health care.
Dr. Jeremy Fish, Dr. Catalina Triana and Dr. Kishore Nath have developed a three-year residency program that trains medical school graduates to become family medicine physicians and serve vulnerable patients in our community. Residents have the ultimate learning experience of training alongside established John Muir Health family medicine physicians. The first class of residents will start July 1, 2017.
Generous donor support in 2015 that helped activate the Family Medicine Residency Program included a $2 million gift from The Thomas J. Long Foundation and $4 million in pooled contributions from John Muir Health Foundation’s general fund with gifts from individual donors ranging from $5 to $25,000.
