Training Sites/Clinics

All fellows are assigned to a continuity care clinic at the VA or the West Clinic. Each first and second year fellow has a continuity clinic for one half day each week at the VA. Patients are longitudinal, managed care, post-hospital follow-ups, consultations, or walk-in primary care patients. First-hand knowledge is gained about managed health care. Each fellow has an extraordinary amount of patient contact. Second and Third year fellows will also have one half day clinic at West Clinic in addition to the VA clinic.

Moonlighting opportunities are available and are at the discretion of the program director and must be in compliance with ACGME duty hour restrictions.
