We are the 2021-2022 Chief Medicine Residents and we would like to invite you to explore our website and consider joining Highland Hospital's Internal Medicine Residency Program! 

Our Internal Medicine Residency Program offers a unique opportunity to live in the East Bay Area and the opportunitiy to care for some of the most vulnerable residents of Alameda County. Each of us had the privilege of training at Highland Hospital and the minute we first stepped foot here, we were hooked. We have taken to heart the Alameda Health System mission statement of "Caring, Healing, Teaching, Serving All." We remain steadfast in our commitment to the patients of Alameda County and to help train our residents to provide outstanding care and improve the lives of those in our safety-net population.

Training here will undoubtedly give you the confidence to take on any and every challenge that may come your way as you begin your career. Our former residents have gone on to serve as staunch patient advocates in primary care, become dedicated hospitalists, and enter competitive fellowships across the country. Our residents have the opportunity to work closely with our faculty and receive mentorship to guide them to successful careers, no matter the setting in which they practice.

We see it as our role to support the residents and drive change through close collaboration with the program leadership. We are honored to serve as the Chief Residents and are available to answer any and all questions that you may have about our program or what it's like living in the Bay Area. We hope that you will consider Highland Hospital's Internal Medicine Residency Program.

Sincerely,

Your 2021-2022 Chief Medicine Residents
