Why Kaiser? When applying for residency programs, I realized that I wanted to work and train in an environment such as Kaiser where preventative care is prioritized and implemented in patient-provider interactions. On my interview day, I was drawn to the collaborative atmosphere and sense of community amongst the Kaiser LA IM house staff and attendings. I appreciated that curiosity and clinical inquiry were encouraged. My experience so far has been great and I’m happy to be a part of the Kaiser LA community!

Medical School: University of California, Los Angeles/David Geffen School of Medicine
Why Kaiser? When choosing a residency program, three things mattered the most to me: cultural fit, exceptional teaching and post-residency career prospect. I had the privilege to rotate through Kaiser multiple times as a UCLA medical student and experienced first-hand the devotion to patient center care, commitment to evidence based medicine and consistent program support for resident wellness. I knew that I not only wanted to be a part of such a residency program, but I also wanted to stay and work within the same organization.

Why Kaiser? When applying for residency, I knew I wanted 3 things from a program, and Kaiser LAMC fit the bill exactly: 1) A moderate size program that emphasizes education - our program goes out of its way to make education a priority; from reviewing landmark articles during rounds, bedside clinical and ultrasound teaching, and dedicated morning and lunchtime conferences, never a day goes by that I don’t learn something new! 2) A program with an excellent fellowship match rate - I’m interested in pursuing fellowship after residency and over the recent years our program has had a 100% match rate. KP LAMC is the tertiary hospital for KP Southern California, therefore we have many fellowship programs already in place here, providing residents with opportunities to make connections and set ourselves up for fellowship. 3) Most importantly, I wanted to be part of a FAMILY. Residency is already tough on its own, and having program co-residents support one another is the main reason why I chose to come to Kaiser. Not only this, our program is one where our leadership (Dr. Tom, Dr. Subject, Dr. Chee, and our amazing current and past Chief Residents) encourages residents to voice their opinions in order to make meaningful changes. In fact, over the past year major changes have already been made purely based on resident feedback. Overall, we all love and support each other here at KP LAMC - my co-residents are some of the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing! I couldn’t imagine my residency anywhere else.

Why Kaiser? It’s the only healthcare system in LA that takes care of patients from head to toe, in every setting. Kaiser really invests in their patients’ wellness, not just their illness.

Why Kaiser? I was looking for a unique experience that will help me continue to grow my interest in healthcare policy and management after medical school. I was drawn to Kaiser Permanente’s integrated healthcare system, opportunities for population health research with its extensive EMR, and the opportunity to pursue a combined residency and Master’s in Public Health. As a PGY3, I think it is safe to say now that I made the right choice.

Why Kaiser? I joined the KP Health Care team because of the emphasis on patient wellness through preventative health care, an integrated EMR, and open communications through follow-up appointments and patient e-mails. I also joined Kaiser because of the great experience with the staff and residents during my sub-internship. The people here create a family like work culture that promotes physician wellness as well as individual and team growth.

Why Kaiser? KP is a unique, comprehensive and far reaching health system in which patients receive the best preventative care, are quickly connected with specialists and supportive services. For trainees, this means a system that is easy to navigate with great ancillary support, allowing us to focus on learning medicine and also provides a great platform for pursuing research. This is a smaller program where I have found a family of close friends (many of whom attended my wedding) and developed a personal connection with the majority of fellows/ attendings. Also, a great place to be recognized by subspecialists if fellowship is your calling but also providing abundant opportunities for primary care and hospitalists.

Eric Ton, MD

Why Kaiser? I have always believed that healthcare should be integrated and affordable. During my MBA training, I learned many of the amazing things Kaiser was doing as an integrated system and as a leader in providing high-value care. Also, the residency program provides strong support for its residents with a growing emphasis on wellness. Also, it doesn’t get much better than living in LA!

Why Kaiser? My main reasons in choosing Kaiser were the overall vibe/people, opportunity to see a wide range of pathology at a tertiary medical center, and to explore future job opportunities within Kaiser. You get to know all classes really well, and everyone looks out for each other from the residents to the administration. One unique thing about the Kaiser LAMC program is the opportunity to improve the program from within; in the three years since I've been here, based on resident feedback, we've added Monday morning reports focused on outpatient topics, restarted class retreats, and started a capstone program (to focus on hospitalist medicine and quality improvement/patient safety).
