We had a great morning with the U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, listening to his top priorities for the health of our nation. We are proud to join the fight against the #OpioidEpidemic and do our part in helping our communities live their healthiest lives.
This special group of students started medical school this week and will graduate in 2022. That’s right, just three years instead of four. They belong to ACE-PC (Accelerated Competency-based Education in Primary Care). It’s a novel approach by our School of Medicine and Kaiser Permanente to more quickly tackle the shortage of family medicine and internal medicine physicians. We extend a warm welcome to: Antoinette Alugbue, Edgar Velazquez, Alejandro Anaya-Rocha, Kimberly Augustine, Marisol Solis, Joy Njuguna, Alexa Becerra-Almendarez and Rubi Galarza.
The 2019 Prep Médico has begun! 45 undergraduate students from campuses across Northern California will spend six weeks here at UC Davis School of Medicine for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to get into a medical school and become a doctor. Thanks to @kpthrive medical centers in Roseville, Sacramento, South Sacramento and Vacaville for allowing these talented freshman and sophomores to shadow physicians.
