Meet the 2021 Residents

Shasta Community Health Center Family Practice Residency

The Family Medicine Residency Program at SCHC is a fully accredited three year continuity training program based at the clinic. The program currently sponsors 6 family practice residents (2-2-2). The program shares inpatient training rotations at Mercy Hospital with the Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program. Inpatient experience includes in depth experience with internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and surgery.

The residents spend three years at SCHC and assume progressively more responsibility for a panel of patients at SCHC. Community rotations in homeless and street medicine, addiction medicine, home visits, institutional care and nursing home care give residents a broad picture of "bringing medicine to the patient" that is at the core of the family medicine ethic. 

Medical students from UC Davis and many other osteopathic and allopathic medical schools in the country rotate regularly through the residency program and develop an appreciation for the core values associated with underserved care.
