About This Program
We are full spectrum Family Medicine
The Family Medicine Residency Program at Ventura County Medical Center (VCMC) is a premier site for full spectrum, unopposed Family Medicine residency training. Affiliated with the UCLA School of Medicine, VCMC is one of the original 15 programs approved in Family Practice and has been educating physicians since 1928. Graduates of the program are equipped with the skills to work anywhere, especially with the medically underserved.
Our program is known for providing training in full spectrum Family Medicine, where residents are first responders to trauma codes, have high level experiences in inpatient medicine and the ICU, and can learn to be primary surgeons on C/Sections. We also have a very robust outpatient training center, with a large outpatient system providing more than 500,000 annual patient visits.
Ventura residents establish continuity primary care practices for a diverse patient population in the Academic Family Medicine Center while managing VCMC's inpatient medicine, surgery, OB, ICU, ER, and pediatrics services. They learn from weekly protected didactic time, enjoy each others' company during an annual all-resident retreat, and live in Ventura, California.
