Who’s eligible?

“The residency really helped my clinical skills advance. The evaluation and treatment skills I learned in school all came together during residency with didactics, internal medicine clinics, clinical shifts, and specialty clinics. SRCH is a great teaching clinic with a supportive environment for new clinicians and medical and nurse practitioner residents.”

—Nisha Patel, FNP

About the NP Program

NP residents will work alongside other professional staff at our Lombardi, Dutton, and Vista campuses. This 12-month salaried program offers your clinical experience and didactic instructions in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder, procedure clinics, and many other specialties.

You will see patients with support from our knowledgeable and responsive faculty preceptors. During the program you will maintain a patient panel from our underserved community of all ages and backgrounds, performing visits for well-care, urgent care, and chronic disease management. You will participate in weekly case reviews to collaborate and get feedback on complex care.

We provide support and training on our electronic health record, practice efficiency, and a gradual progression of patients per shift. At the completion of this 12-month program, you will graduate with a foundation of skills and confidence in primary medical care for all ages. You will be part of our SRCH work community who are dedicated to your learning and success.
