Welcome to the new Alameda Health System-Highland Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program website. Located near Lake Merritt in Oakland, Highland Hospital first opened its doors in 1927, and our ACGME-accredited residency program began in 1955. In 2013, Highland Hospital became part of Alameda Health System (formerly Alameda County Medical Center), an integrated public health care system of five hospitals and four wellness centers. AHS-Highland Hospital is now home to five residency programs -- Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Surgery, and Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery, and Ob/Gyn (joint site with Kaiser Oakland) and a site for other subspecialty and fellowship training programs.
At Highland Hospital, we serve Alameda County’s most vulnerable. Our residency program's mission is to graduate physician leaders who will provide high quality, biopsychosocially-oriented, culturally-relevant care to vulnerable populations. We hope our website will give you a sense of our diverse residency program, residents, program leadership, and passion for serving those in need. Please explore!
