Our goal is to prepare our trainees to become skilled clinicians, thoughtful educators, and socially responsible leaders in any community they serve. We highly value diversity of training experiences; as such, our program combines training and educational experiences at the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center and the UCLA Medical Center. We pride ourselves on being a collegial, tight-knit family that is responsive to our residents’ needs, while maintaining a rigorous academic experience that prepares residents for the next stages of their career.
What we do and who we are, are central to our mission and vision. We hope that as you come to know our primary care family, our mission and vision ignite a mutual passion for patient care.
