The UCSF Fresno Center for Medical Education and Research opened in a new facility on the Community Regional Medical Center campus in 2005.  It features a beautiful library designed around digital resources, a select collection of leading medical textbooks targeted to our 9 resident and 14 fellowship programs, and inviting spaces for study.  The mission of the medical library is to assist our residents, fellows, physician faculty, and staff in obtaining reliable and current medical information, using comprehensive basic science and clinical research resources.
