During this year long program, HeCares residents will build their confidence and sharpen their skills under the guidance of a senior practitioner. Residents will see patients in the clinic, manage a variety of cases, and respond to urgent care and house calls.

HeCares residents are expected to work hours comparable to local Western Medical residencies in the Bay Area. Resident responsibilities include patient care, administrative duties related to patient care, responding to Hurgent Care calls, assistance in daily clinic operations and basic clinic management.
