Homeless / Community Medicine / MAT

Residents rotate into dedicated experiences in Homeless and Community Medicine. Pain management, addiction medicine, infectious diseases, palliative care and public health are all emphasized. This is a forte experience of this training program. All residents are expected to obtain their DEA: X-waiver upon licensure to facilitate participation in the Medically Assisted Therapy (MAT) clinic in Residency. This experience prepares our residents to treat addiction involving opiates, stimulants, tobacco, alcohol and other substances.

We believe in advocating for the underserved and homeless in our community. Dean Germano, CEO of Shasta Community Health Center, and one of our residents travel annually to Washington, D.C. to meet with senators, congressmen and staffers to further the cause of underserved care. Residents and faculty attend the annual National Health Care for the Homeless Council conference - this year in Portland, Oregon. Rural rotations strengthen this training experience, allowing the family practice resident to understand and gain ability with a variety of healthcare systems and diverse patient populations. 

Project HOPE is a designated mobile and street medicine outreach program of SCHC. Health Outreach for People Everywhere supplies medical care via EMR integrated mobile units in the homeless community. Weekly street medicine outreach teams contact our homeless in their camps and on the street. We collaborate with our community to work toward a continuum of care for our most vulnerable populations.
