"I was fortunate enough to have rotated through Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) as a pharmacy student during my Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences. I was able to learn from exceptional preceptors who allowed me to enjoy a balance between mentorship and independence. CRMC offers a rigorous learning experience and is quickly expanding its role in providing optimal care for the pediatric population. I have an interest in eventually specializing in pediatrics and with such a diverse population base, the opportunities to learn are endless. It is for these reasons I have chosen CRMC as the ideal facility to thrive as a resident." -Dr. Lauren Clark (2017-2018)

"I chose Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC), because it provides unique clinical rotations in various critical care settings and emergency medicine. It is the only level 1 trauma and burn center to provide healthcare to patients between Los Angeles and Sacramento. CRMC’s academic affiliation with UCSF facilitates a strong teaching environment and fosters extensive learning opportunities. Lastly, having a full-time residency director, private office, and exceptional preceptors allow me thrive in a supportive learning environment." -Dr. Brandon Sasaki (2017-2018)
