Partnerships that work!

For over 30 years, UC San Diego and Kaiser worked together to train residents. It is a fantastic blend that affords residents the opportunity to train in two educational models. UC San Diego offers an academic model and Kaiser an apprenticeship model both with excellent physician-educators. Did you know Ken Ryan was the first Chair of our Department? As one of the first Ryan Residency Training Programs, UC San Diego has partnered with Planned Parenthood for over 3 decades as well. Our predecessors got it right!  The relationships between UC San Diego, Kaiser Permanente and Planned Parenthood provide amazing educational opportunities for our residents.

Our locations:

  • UC San Diego Health System                    
    • Hillcrest Medical Center (Once the county hospital, the Hillcrest Hospital has long been a regional safety net.  The south campus is also home to our resident clinic, Medical Offices South)
    • Jacobs Medical Center
    • Rebecca and John Moores NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center
    • Rady Children’s Hospital             
  • Kaiser Permanente        
  • Planned Parenthood

Our residents work along-side fellows on several rotations. Learn more about our fellowships.
