LLUMC Residency - Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine

Family & Preventive Medicine Residency Program



Loma Linda University Medical Center is pleased to offer combined training in Family and Preventive Medicine, helping to fulfill our mission "To Make Man Whole." Thank you for visiting us, we're thrilled that you're interested!

Our unique program includes a full spectrum of primary care experiences through the Loma Linda University Family Medicine Residency Program, and a comprehensive exposure to population-based care and health-care systems through the Loma Linda University Preventive Medicine Residency Program. During their four years with us all residents will receive a master's in public Health (MPH) through the Loma Linda University School of Public Health and will have an opportunity to experience unique rotations in either lifestyle medicine or global health.

Upon completion of their training, residents will be board eligible in family medicine and preventive medicine (we are the first and only four-year curriculum that is formally approved by both the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Preventive Medicine). They will be well positioned to lead in the provision of new models of chronic disease care such as obesity and diabetes, as well as global health challenges such as maternal child health and smoking cessation. 

Our current residents, faculty, and institution are excited about what's happening. If you're committed to being an excellent patient care provider and also want to look at the bigger picture in health care, we'd love to talk with you more!
