Training Sites

Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC)

A majority of the Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition fellowship rotations are situated at the CRMC and its affiliated campus. The continuity clinics are additionally situated at FQ (Federally Qualified) clinics, known as the Family Health Care Network (FHCN). GI fellows also have the opportunity to work with the faculty at university clinic sites at University Gastroenterology and Hepatology (UGHA).

The UCSF Fresno training programs and clinical services were transferred from the old University Medical Center to the new state of the art CRMC building in 2007. CRMC has over 685-licensed beds, making it the 5th largest hospital in California and the region’s only Level 1 trauma center. Our emergency room has over 100,000 visits each year, the 2nd busiest in the state. Community Regional’s affiliation with the University of California San Francisco Medical School – one of the top medical schools in the nation – provides patients access to some of the brightest and most forward-thinking medical specialists in the country.


Veterans Affairs Central California Health Care Center (VACCHCS)
VACCHCS is one of main training sites and has been an important partner of the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program since 1975. Gastroenterology fellows spend several rotations at the Fresno VA Medical Center throughout their training.

UCSF Medical Center (San Francisco)
GI/hepatology fellows have two mandatory rotations in Liver Transplantation at UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco, consistently named as one of the top 10 hospitals in the nation. During this rotation fellows stay at the “Fresno House,” a furnished apartment near the San Francisco campus rented for the housestaff by the Medical Education Program..
