Why Graduate Medical Education? 

Charles R. Drew University, College of Medicine’s residency and fellowship programs take advantage of the unique and distinctive characteristics of the South Los Angeles County communities, providing a wealth of learning opportunities. We provide for the health needs of homeless youth, adults, and families; focus on patient-centered team-based healthcare of under-resourced patients; research and apply the notion of community violence as a public health problem; aim for the elimination of social health and illness disparities; and advocate for the democratization of healthcare for special needs, incarcerated and immigrant populations. Residents trained in these areas develop the aptitudes to master the clinical skills necessary for board certification and to practice healthcare delivery anywhere of their choosing.
