Graduate Medical Education (GME)

As our population grows and ages, the demand for physicians continues to grow faster than the supply. We are addressing the need by offering exceptional training for the next generation of physicians in our unique community hospital setting.

Community Memorial Healthcare began residency training in 2013 with accredited programs in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and Orthopedic Surgery. Since then, we have expanded our academic medicine program to include General Surgery and Psychiatry. We also offer an integrated Behavioral Health Psychology fellowship. The goal of our Graduate Medical Education program is to train outstanding physicians who work in a collaborative environment and give back to the communities with which they are involved.

Our program also operates several Health Centers throughout Ventura and Ojai. They are staffed by board-certified faculty physicians and supported by resident physicians from our Graduate Medical Education program. These centers are designed to meet your family’s healthcare needs while helping to train our community’s next generation of physicians.

When you visit one of our Health Centers, you’ll be seen by one of our experienced, attending physicians. Your physician will usually be accompanied by one or more resident physicians who will observe your visit, ask questions, and may participate in various aspects of your consult or exam. This collaborative, teaching approach means your visit may be a little longer than what you’re used to — it gives you more time to get to know your physician, ask questions, and better understand your own health.
