OMFS Externship

Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, California is an extremely busy Level I trauma center in the “Central Valley” of California. The UCSF Fresno OMFS residency program which is centered at Community Regional Medical Center, Fresno, is currently accepting applications for clerkship/externship. Our program is a “full scope” residency training program and serves as an academic tertiary care center for the OMFS profession. Residents gain a broad exposure to nearly all areas of maxillofacial surgery including: facial trauma, head and neck pathology and microvascular reconstruction along with usual areas of OMFS surgical endeavor. Externs will be expected to function in the same capacity as a resident by attending daily rounds, daily clinic, oncall, scrubbing into daily OR cases, and attending all conferences and seminars. The candidate should be interested in pursuing a career in OMFS.
