Resident Life


“One of our real strengths as a residency program is our balance.  All subspecialties are well staffed (often by leaders in the field) and none is under or over-represented in our training.  This balance produces well rounded graduates. 

-Paul Toogood, M.D.

San Francisco is a unique and breathtaking metropolis. From the famous icon of the Golden Gate Bridge to the exquisite art galleries at SFMOMA, the City takes pride in its unrivaled attractions, renowned museums, and its unique neighborhoods which are treasures of its own.  Just a short drive away you can discover the beautiful Napa Valley,  the rugged Big Sur coastline or the powdery slopes of Lake Tahoe.
