Kern Medical has been a community cornerstone since its founding in 1867. Today, we are an acute care teaching center with 222 beds, offering the only advanced trauma care between Fresno and Los Angeles.
Each year, more than 200 residents, fellows and medical students enroll in our UCLA-affiliated training programs, with residencies in internal medicine, surgery, family practice, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and psychiatry. Many of the physicians trained at Kern Medical remain to practice in the community. We also promote the education of clinical pharmacists, nursing students, respiratory therapists, lab techs and allied health professionals.
