NATIONWIDE SEARCH RESULTS
|From as far away as New York City, to our own
backyard, UCSF Fresno’s nationwide search for the Valley’s future
doctors-in-training will be officially announced on Match Day, March 20.
Over the past six months, UCSF Fresno has interviewed more than 600 medical
students to fill 57 positions. The new residents will spend three to five
years training to become the Valley’s future medical doctors.
“Match Day is a significant celebration for UCSF Fresno and the Valley,” said Joan Voris, MD, associate dean of UCSF Fresno. “Of the 57 new doctors arriving to train, we know that more than half will stay in the area to become the Valley’s future doctors.”
Since 1974, UCSF Fresno has trained approximately 2,200 physicians. UCSF Fresno provides specific training for seven medical specialties including family practice, pediatrics, surgery, psychiatry, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology and emergency medicine. Notable UCSF Fresno alumni include J. Phillip Hinton, MD, chief executive officer of Community Medical Centers; Graciela Esquivel-Aguilar, MD, chief of staff for Children’s Hospital of Central California; and Joan Voris, MD, associate dean of UCSF Fresno.
