Tulare Family Medicine Residency


Thank you for taking out time to get to know us at the Adventist Health Tulare Family Medicine Residency Program. I graduated from the Penn State Family and Community Medicine residency program in 2014 as the Chief Resident and the STFM Resident Teacher award winner. I joined our thriving residency program as the Program Director in June 2022 and like to identify myself as a proud Family Physician, having completed two fellowships of one-year each: Hospital Medicine and Population Health. I served as the Core Faculty and Associate Program Director at the WellSpan Health Family Medicine Residency Program in Pennsylvania before joining as the Program Director.

We started our program in July 2021 as a group of talented 6 residents joined our team. We hope to grow into a residency program with 18 residents in total, led by a group of supportive faculty and administrative leadership team.

We aspire to educate and train competent and compassionate family physicians who can provide evidence-based and value-based full-spectrum patient care. Our philosophy of family medicine is one that addresses the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of our patients’ health to promote and maintain overall wellness for our patients and their families. We believe we have been given a special opportunity to make a meaningful and lasting impact to the populations we serve, especially the vulnerable and underserved communities who need our help. To further this, we are expanding our efforts to contribute to community events, performing sports physicals at local high schools and using the Adventist Health mobile van to reach the less fortunate. We plan to actively establish our presence in the American Academy of Family Physicians by reviving the CAFP Tulare chapter. There's this and so much more I’m excited to see come to fruition as Program Director of the Adventist Health Tulare Family Medicine Residency Program.

We hope you will join us in this journey to inspire and lead in the specialty of family medicine. Welcome and God bless!
