Family Medicine

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency Program website at Kaweah Delta Health Care District (KDHCD) 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.

We are based in a large community hospital and are committed to growing a state-of-the-art teaching center in medically underserved Tulare County.  Effective July 2011, KDHCD was granted institutional accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Additionally, accreditation was granted to the Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine Programs effective July 2012 - each of whom welcomed their first class of residents in July 2013.  When at full complement, the Family Medicine Program will have a total of eighteen residents.  Accreditation was also recently awarded to the Psychiatry Residency Program which welcomed its first residents in June 2014, and the Transitional Year Program which will be interviewing for its first class to begin in 2015.  A General Surgery Program is planned for the near future.

The Family Medicine Center is part of KDHCD’s community clinic system and is actively caring for patients from the rural, medically underserved communities of Exeter, Woodlake, Farmersville, Three Rivers and Ivanhoe as well as many patients from Visalia.  In the fall of 2014, we plan to open a brand new Family Medicine Center adjacent to the Medical Center to better serve our patients.

You will enjoy working with a team of outstanding Family Physicians with over 100 years of combined experience in the field of Family Medicine. You will be 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.
