Family Medicine Residency- O'Connor

The mission of the San Jose-O’Connor Family Medicine Residency Program is to prepare outstanding Family Medicine physicians who can thrive in any practice setting. To accomplish this, we provide a collaborative, supportive environment; innovative educational methods; a strong diverse faculty; and a commitment to the underserved.

Palliative Care Resident Education

In partnership with the Stanford Internal Medicine Residency Program, all Internal Medicine residents spend time on the Palliative Medicine inpatient consultative service. Additional elective experiences are available to interested residents. Trainees have an opportunity to see patients with serious illness at various stages in their disease process and aid with complex symptom management, as well as advanced care planning.

Geriatrics Residency Training

In partnership with the Stanford Internal Medicine Residency Program, we offer Geriatric Medicine required and elective rotations designed to prepare physicians for optimal care of older patients.

Stanford Ambulatory Care Excellence (ACE)

The Stanford Ambulatory Care Excellence (ACE) program is designed to enhance the traditional Internal Medicine residency experience by providing opportunities to gain high-yield clinical skills for practice in the academic outpatient setting. Residents in this program participate in a yearly 2-week ACE rotation that is specially designed to expose them to non-medicine subspecialty clinics as well as Express Care clinic. Additionally, residents benefit from close mentorship by ACE faculty with expertise in their specific areas of interest, as well as quarterly dinner presentations, and an annual leadership retreat. 

The pre-clinic modules are created by the faculty and staff in the Division of Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH) for distribution to its residents. New modules are distributed weekly. Past and current modules are available here. If you cannot access the modules, please contact
