Message from the Chief Residents
Hello and thank you for your interest in UCSF Fresno Pediatrics! We are the fortunate and dedicated residents who serve California’s Central Valley, a widely diverse community, with a catch all area that allows us to see the rarest, most complex disorders, all the while becoming masters of the routine. We have the benefit of training in Community Regional Medical Center, one of the largest community hospital systems in the central valley, and Valley Children’s Hospital, the only free standing children’s hospital in the Central Valley. We are trained to be excellent general pediatricians, and also prepared to take on any fellowship. And we do!
