About the UC San Diego Residency Programs

The University of California San Diego Health System  includes inpatient, ambulatory care and home health facilities.  Three inpatient teaching hospitals and several ambulatory care clinical areas serve as primary teaching sites for the UC San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, UC San Diego School of Medicine and for other professional programs in health sciences.  Our facilities include Hillcrest Hospital, Thornton Hospital, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, as well as the Moores Cancer Center.

Our Residency programs promote professional maturity to develop the resident’s sense of professional responsibility and to enable residents to provide care to a wide range of patients.  Residents serve as active members of multidisciplinary teams, participate in  teaching, precepting and research opportunities and broaden their clinical knowledge and confidence.  Over twenty-five elective rotations are available, including Surgical ICU, Medical ICU, CCU, Burn ICU, Emergency Department, Cardiology, Neonatal ICU, Transitions of Care, CT Transplant/Ventricular Assist Devices, In-patient Abdominal Transplant/Hepatobiliary Diseases, Ambulatory Care Kidney, Liver, Heart, and Lung Transplant, Oncology, BMT, HIV, Infectious Diseases service, Investigational Drug service and Nephrology – all taught by caring, supportive and knowledgeable preceptors.  We also offer PGY2 residencies in Critical Care, Infectious Diseases, Oncology, Psychiatry, Transitions of Care and Transplantation.
