UCSF Family Medicine Educational Alliance

​The UCSF Family Medicine Educational Alliance consists of nine Bay Area Family Medicine residencies that collaborate to form a community that promotes education, mentorship, outreach and career opportunities in Family Medicine. All of the sites below are affiliated with UCSF’s Department of Family and Community Medicine. Shared activities include participation in the annual DFCM Rodnick Colloquium, UCSF’s Northern California Residency Fair, meetings of the chief residents, FCM career panels for residents, and other primary care activities. As the Alliance continues to deepen the connections between programs, we seek to promote additional collaboration in faculty development and shared resident electives.
