Our core mission is to provide both cognitive and procedural training in a supportive environment, creating a solid foundation in Family Medicine that allows our graduates to provide full spectrum primary care to their chosen community. A typical day in our residents’ continuity clinic involves skin procedures, managing diabetes, inserting an IUD, providing prenatal care, performing musculoskeletal injection, doing a Medicare Wellness visit and finishing with well-child check. We offer full reproductive women's health with c-section privileged faculty and abortion training. Our continuity Family Medicine practices are truly “one stop shops” that serve diverse patient populations throughout the greater Sacramento region.
