Behind the Loma Linda University Church, four charter buses pulled up to accommodate more than 170 new resident physicians on the first “See the City You Serve” tour during the first day of residency orientation in Loma Linda, California, United States.
On Monday, June 25, 2018,the newest class of Loma Linda University Medical Center resident physicians explored San Bernardino Countyand the branch clinic locations where they will serve, including the current SAC Health System – San Bernardino clinic located at Loma Linda University Health – San Bernardino Campus. They also saw the old SAC Health System – Norton clinic on Third Street.
The tour offered resident physicians a unique glimpse into the health disparities of one of the largest counties in the U.S. and a better understanding of social determinants their patients face.
