Family & Preventive Medicine Residency Program



Loma Linda University Medical Center is pleased to offer combined training in Family and Preventive Medicine, helping to fulfill our mission "To Make Man Whole." Thank you for visiting us, we're thrilled that you're interested!

Our unique program includes a full spectrum of primary care experiences through the Loma Linda University Family Medicine Residency Program, and a comprehensive exposure to population-based care and health-care systems through the Loma Linda University Preventive Medicine Residency Program. During their four years with us all residents will receive a Master's in Public Health (MPH) through the Loma Linda University School of Public Health and will have an opportunity to experience unique exposures to our two areas of strength -Lifestyle Medicine and Global Health.

Upon completion of their training, residents will be board eligible in family medicine and preventive medicine (we are the first and only four-year curriculum that is formally approved by both the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Preventive Medicine).  Residents will be competent in Lifetyle Medicine (see JAMA article) and well positioned to respond to changes in health care implemented through the Affordable Care Act (see NEJM article).  We believe our graduates will lead in the provision of new models of chronic disease care such as obesity and diabetes, as well as global health challenges such a maternal child health and smoking cessation. Our residency vision is to create a worldwide health epidemic.

Our residency team is excited about what's happening. If you're committed to being an excellent patient care provider and also want to look at the bigger picture in health care, we'd love to talk with you more!
