Family Medicine Residency Program
With the help of donor support and grant funding, John Muir Health launched its first medical training program in affiliation with UCSF. The 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.
Generous donor support in 2015 helped activate the Family Medicine Residency Program (FMRP) including 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.
The Family Medicine Residency Program focuses on primary care for the whole family, including the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of each individual patient. Additionally, the program includes training for medical residents across a broad spectrum of clinical areas including pregnancy care, women’s health, pediatrics, adult care, elder care, urgent care, behavioral health, and emergency services.
