About the RUHS / UCR Family Medicine Residency Program
The RUHS / UCR Family Medicine Residency Program is a core part of the primary care foundation of Riverside University Health System. We work collaboratively with other hospital departments to provide high-quality and comprehensive care.
The RUHS Medical Center is a state-of-the-art 439-bed county hospital that provides care to an under-served and diverse patient population of the Inland Empire. The unique training experience offers our resident physicians an opportunity to make a positive impact within our community with rewarding experiences that will follow throughout their professional careers.
Our residency program’s continuity clinic is housed at the new Moreno Valley Community Health Center (MVCHC), which is a Federally Health Qualified Center (FQHC) three miles from RUHS-MC that provides comprehensive care to our vulnerable patient population, including behavioral health and social services.
We partner with community organizations and RUHS Public Health to identify social determinants of health and reduce health disparities for our diverse patient population. We also participate in advocacy for policy and legislation related to our patient support systems (on average: 84% Medi-Cal, 7% Medicare, 1.5% indigent, 5% self-pay, 2% private payor).
Our graduates practice in a variety of settings within the Inland Empire and outside of California: community health centers, small-group practice, hospitalist medicine, academic centers. No matter the setting or location, the vast majority of our graduates continue to work with under-served and vulnerable populations.
