UCSF Fresno Will Welcome New Physicians This Summer

UCSF Fresno recently wrapped up another successful recruitment period on Match Day in March. One of the incoming medical residents is Fresno native Andres Anaya. Anaya was born the eldest son of Mexican immigrants, both of whom are deaf. His first language was American Sign Language. At the age of 5, he began translating for his family. Economic, cultural and social challenges soon led to academic difficulties for Anaya at school. After graduating from high school, he took a job in a tire factory where he suffered an industrial accident. The accident landed him in the emergency department, leaving him temporarily paralyzed and physically and emotionally traumatized. It took several years to overcome his injuries, but from then on, he set his mind to becoming an emergency medicine physician.


Anaya is one of 100 new physicians who will start their residency and fellowship training at UCSF Fresno this summer. UCSF Fresno currently offers residency training in eight specialties and fellowship training in 14 subspecialties. Forty percent of the physicians trained at UCSF Fresno stay in the region to practice.
