Preventive Medicine Residency


The Preventive Medicine Residency is a fully accredited (ACGME) residency program, co-sponsored by the SDSU Graduate School of Public Health and the University of California – San Diego.

The purpose of the program is to train physicians to assure that they have adequate knowledge, attitudes, and skills germane to general preventive medicine. The physician will be eligible to sit for the board certification examination administered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.

Residents of the program are both UCSD housestaff and SDSU graduate students throughout their residency experience.  All residents spend 24 months in the program, and didactic and practicum rotations are done concurrently.
