Riverside has a long history and demonstrated focus on physician education and offers on-site residencies in the areas of Family Medicine and OB/GYN. For students who have not yet entered a residential specialty, a "Transitional Year" residency is offered where a multi-disciplinary understanding of many medical specialties is provided. All residency programs include significant opportunity for hands-on training in a practice and acute care setting.
Family Medicine Residency
One of the oldest Family Medicine residencies in the country, our program places a strong emphasis on individualized programs tailored to meet the needs of each student. A high faculty to student ratio, assigned patient panels and a focus on the use of electronic medical records, insures today's students are prepared for tomorrow's practice. For more information please contact Kathleen Hundley, Residency Coordinator, (757) 594-3889.
Supported by local private practice and hospital-based OB/GYN physicians, our residency program offers a wide range of hands-on clinical instruction in a private practice and acute care setting. Residents serve as on-call obstetrical and gynecological back up to our Level II Emergency Room and Trauma Center and carry an assigned patient panel. For more information, please contact Betty Hamrick, OB/GYN Residency Coordinator, (757) 594-4737.
For students who have not yet selected a medical specialty or those who will enter other health-related fields such as public health or administration, the Transitional Residency provides a multi-disciplinary experience across many areas of medicine. Graduates enter a broad field of specialties including anesthesiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, neurology, pathology, PM & R, preventative medicine, radiology and radiation oncology.
