Our Alumni

Alumni of the UCSF/SFGH Family and Community Medicine Residency Program pursue many career paths after graduation. True to our mission, many choose to stay in public clinics and family health centers, serving the most marginalized populations of their communities. Others go on to Fellowships in healthcare policy, education or specialties; and still others move into private family practices. We're proud of all of our graduates and the work they continue to do to increase access to care for those who need it most. 

Many of our graduates continue their work right here in San Francisco. Their leadership demonstrates the unique position that primary care and family medicine have in our system, our hospitals, and our program.
