The stanford - O’Connor Family Medicine Residency Program is part of a long tradition of excellence in the training of Family Medicine residents in the San Jose area since 1977.

after previously being sponsored by San Jose Medical Center from 1977 until 2005, our program was approved by the ACGME to begin July 2005 at O’Connor Hospital.

in 2017, our program integrated with Stanford Health Care and now affords our trainees a unique opportunity to train at a thriving County-owned community hospital while accessing the educational resources of a world-renowned health system.

Our mission is to prepare outstanding Family Medicine physicians who can thrive in any practice setting.  To accomplish this, we provide a collaborative, supportive environment; innovative educational methods; a strong diverse faculty; and a commitment to the underserved. 

On-Call at O'Connor  

One of the great things about being on call at O’Connor Hospital is that you get to do it all – delivering babies, admitting patients, managing the ICU, checking on that kiddo on the peds floor – sometimes all in the same night!  



Stanford Sponsorship  

The Stanford - O’Connor Family Medicine Residency Program is the only family medicine residency sponsored by Stanford Health Care.  

Resident Life

Outside of the hospital, residents frequently spend time together. Social activities include bowling, happy hour, an annual Halloween party, karaoke, book club, wine tasting, hiking, kayaking, and much more! Family and friends are always welcome!
