Elective Rotation: West County Health Center (Contra Costa)
Contact: Tracy L. White, Ali Block
Location: San Pablo, 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. I shadowed Ali Block at this clinic in the East Bay. The patient population was more diverse than at Vista, otherwise, this clinic was very similar to Vista.
