Celebrating over 60 years of primary care physician education at Contra Costa

Our graduates are highly sought after for their broad range of clinical skills. Most of our graduates take positions working with the rural or urban underserved populations in Northern California and beyond. Some are doing amazing things abroad. Many become faculty members at Family Medicine Residency Programs. 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, palliative care, HIV, global health).

As of March 2015, 60% of our graduates in the last 10 years are practicing in ambulatory care settings and 40% are in acute care settings (EM, hospital, OB). Just over 70% are working in California and over 40% are in Contra Costa county.
