Hillary Campbell, MD
“My goal is to create an environment where medical students and residents feel supported and where they can learn.”
Hillary Campbell had many excellent teachers during her training, and as a result, she strives to be a stellar mentor to all of her students.
“My goal is to create an environment where medical students and residents feel supported and where they can learn,” she says. In her role as Director, she develops innovative UME and GME programs in conjunction with UC Davis.
Dr. Campbell developed and leads a summer program for second year medical students who are interested in primary care careers. She oversees the traditional primary care block rotation for third year medical students and a fourth year primary care elective. She also administers two primary care clinic experiences for UCD residents.
Recently, Dr. Campbell was designated as the Kaiser Permanente lead on a program funded by the American Medical Association to accelerate training for primary care physicians, in part, to meet the growing need for generalists with the advent of health care reform. Under the program, students who are committed to a career in primary care attend medical school for three years instead of four, then transition to their residency program at KP or UCD.
Dr. Campbell’s outstanding work as a clinician, mentor and educator have inspired more than one medical student to choose a career in primary care, often with TPMG.
