I never would have believed that I could learn so much in such a short period of time. I feel that I have truly grown in both my clinical and surgical skills through the years with the help of many experienced attendings and residents who are all excited about teaching. I also feel lucky to be in a program where the residents care about each other, are able to socialize outside of the hospital, and truly work together as an effective team within a hospital.

Kimberly Lee, MD, Class of 2007 Now Practicing at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Santa Clara

The Kaiser Santa Clara clinical and surgical training is strong in volume and pathology, and set in an environment focused on resident learning and education. The attendings truly care about our wellbeing and teaching us patient centered, evidence based medicine. The teamwork and camaraderie of the residents builds a supportive environment in which you can work hard, have fun and thrive. I feel incredibly lucky to have trained here and would choose it again without hesitation.

Marie Holzapfel , MD, Class of 2012 Gyn Onc Fellow at UCLA

Kaiser Santa Clara has a reputation as a supportive environment, where the emphasis on resident wellness is apparent and the clinical training is among the best in California (and I would argue, the country!). This was certainly my experience, and as a fellow in FPMRS who works with residents from two OB/Gyn programs, and with Sub-I's from all over the country, I have heard people echo these sentiments many times. The residency has tapped into something special that provides opportunities in research and global health, while at the same time offering training in evidence-based, high volume, full-scope OB/Gyn. Yes, graduates have gone on to do sub-specialty fellowship, private practice, and academics, but the fact that residents in multiple classes chose to stay at KP-SCL is a mark of a program that not only trains people well but can also retain them. I am proud to have graduated from a program with such balance of scholarship, clinical excellence, and resident support!
