About LifeLong Medical Care
LifeLong Medical Care is a Federally Qualified Health Center in Northern California with over 42 years of dedicated service to the community. LifeLong provides comprehensive, compassionate care to over 60,000 patients in socio-economically underserved regions of the East Bay Area. We provide medical, dental, behavioral health, and school-based services at 20 sites across Oakland, Berkeley and West Contra Costa County.
Our mission is to provide high-quality health and social services to underserved people of all ages; create models of care for the elderly, people with disabilities and families; and advocate for continuous improvements in the health of our communities.
To address the critical shortage of primary care physicians in the East Bay, LifeLong Medical Care has made a commitment to start a Family Medicine Residency Program based in a new interdisciplinary facility in Richmond, CA. The Residency Program Director would be instrumental in developing a 12-18 resident (4-6 residents per year) program that will contribute to a physician workforce dedicated to improving health outcomes of vulnerable populations.
The Residency Program Director will assist in developing and writing the accreditation application, support the Director of Academic Affairs/DIO (e.g., providing reports on all aspects of graduate medical education and clinical delivery services provided by the residents), and serve as a bridge to community hospital partners. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in improving socio-economic disparities and community health. Minimum requirements are at least two years of full-time Family Medicine faculty experience.
