The Contra Costa Family Medicine Residency Program is a training program located in the San Francisco Bay Area with more than 35 years of excellence in Family Medicine education. We serve a diverse patient population and are committed to caring for the underserved.

Located in Martinez (pop. 30,000), an East Bay community just 35 miles from San Francisco and 20 miles from Berkeley, we are vigorously committed to primary care, teaching, care of the underserved, and the promise of family practice. We have no competing residencies, and our new and financially secure county hospital provides an ideal setting for training.
