Elective Rotation: Hayward Wellness Center
Contact: Tracy L. White
Location: Hayward, CA
I spent time shadowing alumni at several different clinics in order to get a taste of what other practice settings and community clinics are like. As a resident, there are few opportunities to evaluate if our experiences at our home clinics are universal to primary care, a community clinic or very individual experiences. I was able to get a snapshot of other clinic settings and am hoping to use the information to help guide my future career endeavors. This clinic seemed to run well and had a diverse population. I did get the sense, however, that they are struggling to clarify the role of the family medicine provider. For instance, they have OBs that work there, and so family docs are not doing prenatal care currently.
