Residents will learn about the care of children in a variety of settings throughout our community.
 
  • The outpatient experience happens at several Santa Rosa Community Health sites: the Vista and Airway Campuses (sites of resident Continuity Clinics), the Pediatric Campus in Roseland, and at the high-school-based Elsie Allen Campus. These settings ensure a broad experience in preventive health care, as well as management of common and complex childhood conditions. 
  • The inpatient experience is based at the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital/UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital pediatric unit. Fully staffed with pediatric hospitalists, the unit provides general pediatric care for children in the North Bay and beyond. Additional pediatric services include a Level II Trauma Unit and UCSF Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  
  • During the R2 year our residents rotate through the Emergency Department at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland where they manage acutely ill children with a wide range of medical conditions. 
  • Residents also gain experience caring for children with complex diseases during their subspecialty rotation (see “Specialty Experiences”). Elective opportunities include clinics focusing on adolescent medicine, pediatric subspecialties, and pediatric urgent care. Our residents graduate with the ability to provide high quality personalized care for all children.
