Welcome aspiring nurse practitioners! Since its inception, the East Bay Consortium-Nurse Practitioner Residency (EBC-NPR) Program has led the way in creating a post-graduate training experience that focuses on health equity, anti-oppression, and clinical excellence. Just as we care for the whole patient at our clinics, we educate the whole person by fostering resiliency, creating community, and teaching you the clinical content and skills you need to care for systemically disadvantaged populations in a busy, always evolving, community health setting. We’re glad you found your way to this website and to this profession. And we can’t wait to meet you!
The East Bay Consortium-Nurse Practitioner Residency program is a 12-month intensive training program sponsored by LifeLong Medical Care and designed as a partnership between four Federally Qualified Community Health Centers and one academic center: Bay Area Community Health, La Clinica, LifeLong Medical Care, Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, and University of California San Francisco’s School of Nursing (UCSF-SON).
Our mission is to train newly graduated nurse practitioners to provide comprehensive, competent, and compassionate care to a diverse and underserved low-income population across the lifespan using an evidence-based, trauma-informed and collaborative approach. Under the shared goal of building a diverse and excellent nurse practitioner workforce and improving access to quality care for vulnerable systemically disadvantaged communities, we harness the clinical expertise of providers from these health centers and UCSF-SON faculty to offer our residents a unique curriculum and program structure that consists of primary care and specialty clinic rotations, weekly didactics, and quality improvement projects.

Our mission is to train newly graduated nurse practitioners to provide comprehensive, competent and compassionate care to a diverse and underserved low-income population across the lifespan using an evidence-based, trauma-informed and collaborative approach.
The NPR curriculum, including didactics and specialty rotations, will highlight what NPs need to know to serve high risk/low-income patients with a focus especially on population health, behavioral health and substance abuse. Caring for patients with a history of trauma can lead to vicarious trauma and a high rate of burnout. This can be especially true for providers from disadvantaged backgrounds whose own experience may be similar to that of their patients. Special attention will be paid to teaching NPRs the art of self-care and good work/life balance, with didactics in vicarious trauma and trauma-informed care and weekly group debriefings. Residents will be encouraged to lean on each other for support as they build their resilience.
