UCSF-East Bay Surgical Residency Program
The residents of the of the UCSF-East Bay Program rotate through clinical rotations at the Alameda Health System (Highland Hospital), Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, Walnut Creek, Hayward, and Fremont), San Francisco VA Medical Center (San Francisco, CA), Children's Hospital (Oakland), VA Medical Center (Reno, NV) and the California Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco). Clinical rotations through the various sites provide our residents with exposure to a wide variety of patients with diverse clinical problems, surgical faculty, and practice environments.
Traditionally, at the completion of training, the residents have gained extensive experiences in all of the primary components of general surgery. Our graduates comfortably exceed the requirements in all of the defined categories outlined by the American Board of Surgery.
The program matches 7 categorical and 7 preliminary residents each year and has positions for 43 residents (12-10-7-7-7), with all categorical residents who perform satisfactorily finishing at the end of the fifth clinical year. Residents in good standing may elect a period of research after the second or third clinical year.
