Sierra Vista Family Medicine Residency Program
The Sierra Vista Family Medicine Residency Program (SVFMRP), located in Fresno, California, is a newly accredited 4-person per year residency training program created as a teaching health center. It is a partnership between Clinica Sierra Vista, a federally qualified health center, and Fresno Healthy Communities Access Partners, a consortium of community health organizations. This teaching health center was formed in response to the shortage of primary care physicians in the Central San Joaquin Valley, with financial support through the Affordable Care Act. As such, one of our goals is to train and retain exceptional, culturally-competent family physicians in this region, with particular emphasis on practice in community health centers and other areas that reach medically underserved populations.
