CVHP to launch Family Residency Program

Citrus Valley Health Partners is determined to meet the health care needs for the communities it serves now and in the future.

This is why CVHP is looking to establish a Family Medicine Residency Program in partnership with East Valley Community Health Center in 2017, optimizing the resources of both organizations. A primary care residency program allows CVHP and EVCHC to train, develop and create relationships with new physicians equipped to meet the specific health care needs of the community.

CVHP has already been approved as a medical training site by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and has hired Tracey Lee Norton, DO, FAAFP as director of its Family Residency Program. Dr. Norton brings with her more than 30 years of experience in the field of family medicine, previously heading the family residency program at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. Most recently, she has been on the medical staff and in practice at Catalina Island Medical Center in Avalon, CA where she also served as the medical director of Clinical Laboratory Services.

Citrus Valley’s Chief Population Health Officer Dr. Jorge Reyno will also help lead the program’s development.“With the population in the East San Gabriel Valley continuing to grow, so will the demand for primary care and family medicine doctors,” says Dr. Reyno. “Our goal is to develop a comprehensive graduate medical education program that attracts, develops and retains quality physicians for our community.”
