Life after Residency

Recognizing that career choices can change dramatically during training, career counseling is an important part of the twice-yearly resident meetings with the residency program directors.

In addition to the program directors, members of our teaching faculty actively help residents make career decisions and find positions in a variety of professional settings, including some of the most competitive subspecialty fellowships and most highly regarded primary care medical groups and community clinics in the Bay Area and across the US.
