Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) is excited to offer two types of educational opportunities for medical professionals: our Family Medicine Residency Program and the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant Immersion Program.  In today’s dynamic and outpatient-centered health care system, we believe that medical professionals should be exposed to diverse patient populations and clinical problems in a range of settings. Through our medical education programs, FHCSD recruits and trains physicians from diverse backgrounds who are interested in providing care to the underserved communities of San Diego, while providing high-quality, broad-based clinical education and experience.

Family Medicine Training Residency

A community-based training program located in the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego. City Heights, the most ethnically diverse neighborhood in San Diego–and one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the nation–is called home by a large number of Latinos, Somali, Vietnamese and Cambodians. The clinic provides approximately 65,000 patient visits annually. For inpatient medicine and surgical experience, residents rotate through Scripps Mercy Hospital, recognized for its high performance in 12 different medical specialties, and Rady Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in California and ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties surveyed by U.S. News & World Report.
