More than 40 percent of UCSF Fresno trained physicians stay in the Valley

New data shows that on average more than 40% of medical residents and fellows trained by UCSF Fresno stay in the Central Valley to provide care. A recent study looked at the current practice sites for all UCSF Fresno graduates between 1999 and 2016. There were 1,251 graduates during this period. Nearly all of the UCSF Fresno training programs had comparable Central Valley retention rates ranging from 40.4% to 49.1%. Sixty-nine percent of the UCSF Fresno graduates in 2016 are currently practicing in the Central Valley and 82% are practicing in California. The results indicated a higher Central Valley retention rate starting in 2007 with more than 50% retention in eight of the last nine years. Importantly, the data demonstrate the impact of longer training times at UCSF Fresno. Simply put, the longer physicians train at UCSF Fresno or complete their final training at UCSF Fresno, the more likely they are to stay in the region. UCSF Fresno provides training in eight medical specialties, oral and maxillofacial surgery and 17 subspecialties with more training programs planned.
