Celebrating over 60 years of primary care physician education at Contra Costa
- Current practice - Past practice
Our graduates are highly sought after for their broad range of clinical skills and ability to take care of patients in any setting. The majority of our graduates take positions working with the rural or urban underserved populations in Northern California and beyond, including part-time and full-time international work. Many become faculty members at Family Medicine Residency Programs, while others work in the ER, as hospitalists (including ICU work), as OB faculty, and in outpatient private practices. Some have gone on to do fellowships (OB, hospital medicine, palliative care, HIV, global health).
As of 2018, 57% of our graduates in the last 10 years have practiced in acute care settings (Emergency medicine, Hospital Medicine, Obstetrics including surgical OB, Inpatient Pediatrics), many in addition to an ambulatory practice. Just over 70% are working in California and over 30% are in Contra Costa county.
