UCSF Fresno says goodbye to first class of PRIME medical students, welcomes another


In 2011, UCSF Fresno partnered with the UC Davis School of Medicine and UC Merced to train physicians for the region as part of the San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education (PRIME). The programs’ first four students – Kelly Fujikawa, Agustin Morales, Sidra Suess and Christina Thabit are completing clinical training at UCSF Fresno and will be graduating with their medical degrees in May. All four recently matched with residency programs. Morales will be joining UCSF Fresno’s Internal Medicine Residency Program this summer. While the above are wrapping up medical school, another six PRIME students in their third year of medical school will start clinical training at UCSF Fresno in April. All of the incoming students have Valley ties and are interested in practicing in the region and caring for the underserved. UCSF Fresno trains about 300 medical students on a rotating basis throughout the year, including those in PRIME and the Longitudinal Integrated Fresno Experience.
