UCSF Primary Care General Internal Medicine Residency
The UCSF Primary Care (UCPC) General Internal Medicine Residency is a three-year program designed to train leaders in General Internal Medicine. The UCPC Program was created in 1974 and continues to be a leader in primary care training and General Internal Medicine.
UCPC residents learn to become socially responsible, skilled internists, and emerge as leaders in academic general medicine, research, public health, public policy, advocacy, care of the underserved, education, health systems innovation, community-based primary care and the general medicine subspecialties (geriatrics, palliative care, etc). Spending more than half of their PGY2/PGY3 time in the ambulatory setting, residents receive rigorous, individualized general medicine training and a comprehensive didactic curriculum to build a foundation in clinical medicine, health systems and practice improvement. UCPC residents are mentored by program leadership and faculty within the UCSF Division of General Internal Medicine. The primary care residency is fully integrated with the Department of Medicine’s other internal medicine residency programs, allowing UCPC residents the opportunity to take full advantage of the teaching offered in our 3-hospital system.
