Medical Student Opportunities at Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa

We proudly offer a wide range of medical student rotations at our medical center. Medical students and residents have been rotating at Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa for more than a decade. If you are a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year student who may be interested in applying to our Family Medicine residency program, we encourage you to peruse our website, come meet us at the AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in Kansas City, and consider applying for one of our 4th year Family Medicine elective rotations in the spring of your 3rd year. We welcome medical students to apply for our student programs and experience the breadth and depth of Family Medicine in our residency Family Medicine Center, and in the busy community setting of Sonoma County.

Fourth Year Electives

Students in our 4th year electives will work one on one with residency faculty to care for and follow patients across the medical center, providing full scope care, including pediatrics, women’s health/prenatal care, geriatrics, and procedures in our fully integrated medical home. Students will experience Kaiser’s innovative, team-based approach to preventive care, health education, and population management, as well as its use of cutting edge technology, such as video visits and teledermatology.

We offer three different 4th year Family Medicine electives on VSAS, and can tailor experiences to fit students’ interests. For more information, please contact our Program Administrator, Kim Eisert, at KPSantaRosaFMR@kp.org or (707) 393-4015.

FAM1: Family Medicine 4th year Elective: The Future of Primary Care

Healthcare is changing at a rapid rate, and Kaiser Permanente is at the leading edge. Students will see patients in our Family Medicine Center with residency faculty, delivering full-scope care and using evidence-based medicine, population management, and the power of our integrated, team-based model with ready access to specialists to provide optimal healthcare (not just sick-care!) Students will be given a small panel of high risk patients whom they will follow in partnership with nurses, pharmacists, and clinical health educators, and will also have the opportunity to round on newborns, work in the Sports Medicine clinic, and participate in a variety of group visits and health education classes.

FAM2: Family Medicine 4th year Elective: Integrative Medicine & Wellness Focus

At Kaiser Permanente, “thrive” isn’t just a slogan; it’s a way of life. Integrative Medicine is a cornerstone of our new Family Medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa. This 4th year elective will focus on healthcare that supports and honors the whole person. Students will work closely with our integrative medicine faculty physicians as well as acupuncturists, nutritionists, physical therapists, and health educators in a variety of classes, including yoga and mindfulness-based stress reduction. There will be an opportunity to tailor the rotation to individual interests. Students will learn how family physicians can successfully integrate complementary approaches into a busy primary care practice.

FAM3: Family Medicine 4th year Elective: Latino Health Focus & La Salud Permanente

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing culturally competent care to the communities we serve. 4th year medical students who are passionate about Latino health will have the opportunity to serve the quickly growing Latino population in Sonoma County. Students will work in Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa’s award winning “La Clinica” with our faculty physicians, gaining exposure to the breadth of health issues faced by Latino patients and improving their medical Spanish skills. This experience will demonstrate the positive impact Kaiser’s integrated, population-based healthcare system can have on maximizing the total health of a community.

La Salud Permanente is a regionally-sponsored elective for 4th year medical students and residents who want to contribute to Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to diversity. For more information and to apply, please visit La Salud Permanente Latino Health Elective.

Medical Students & Global Health:

To attract and encourage globally-minded medical students who possess a passion for public health and care for underserved populations, the Kaiser Permanente Napa-Solano Family Medicine Residency Program is pleased to announce its sponsorship of a merit-based Global Health clinical elective. We invite applications from interested students currently enrolled in accredited U.S. medical schools who have successfully completed at least two years of training. Participants in the Global Health Clinical Elective will, on average, spend 1 week at the Kaiser Permanente Napa-Solano Family Medicine Residency in pre-travel preparation and education, 1-2 weeks engaged in service- based learning at the international site, and a final week back at KP Napa-Solano for debriefing and presentation of a scholarly project. We believe that Global Health experiences should not be limited to those few who can afford to cover the costs. Each medical student accepted for the KP Global Health Clinical Elective will receive a stipend/award of up to $3000 toward the cost of travel and living abroad during the elective. The full award will be granted upon successful completion of all requirements of the elective.

For more information about this exciting opportunity and to apply, please visit VSAS or contact our residency program assistant, Gilbert Garces by email or phone (707) 651-5628.
