Resident Life


Residency at Alameda Health System - Highland Hospital exposes residents to a vibrant learning environment as well as the opportunity to live in the beautiful Bay Area. The residency program is dedicated towards balancing service and education with wellness. Here are some highlights of the resident lifestyle.


At Work

Signing out at 6:30AM can be very energizing! At least for a few interns (left). Grand rounds with bagels, coffee, and pastries (right). "Bow-Tie Friday" - a weekly Internal Medicine tradition started by the interns of 2014!

Intern Welcome Party 2016

The new interns are welcomed into the Highland Family at the Intern Welcome Party

Stress Free Friday

Occassionally we all need a break from the daily grind. Residents bask in the beautiful East Bay sun and enjoy pizza, basketball and a competitive game of corn hole.


At Home

Future Highland interns (the babies) and their families meeting for some outdoor fun (above). Holiday parties and gatherings at the categorical retreat (below).


Out and About

Oakland and the surrounding Bay Area is abundant with activities. Here are some of our residents making the most of the beautiful area!
