Diversify Your Expertise
As a physician with the Southern California Permanente Medical Group (SCPMG), you’ll be able to gain experience you couldn’t get elsewhere. That’s because you’ll be caring for a truly diverse patient population, one whose health concerns are as varied as the cultures and backgrounds our members represent. You’ll also be partnering with your colleagues and the communities we serve to explore new treatments and technologies, so we can better meet everyone’s needs. All the while, you’ll be collaborating with people who, like you, understand and represent the delivery of culturally responsive and compassionate care.
Embracing Every Culture In Our Community
Maria Carrasco, MD, Regional Physician Lead, Culturally Responsive Care
Our physicians, our patients, our staff and our volunteers: each group is made up of individuals whose unique perspectives contribute to our universal goal of enhancing the health and well-being of our member community. Together, we’re able to create an environment where everyone’s differences are respected and embraced. By being sensitive to a patient’s culture—a term that encompasses age, gender, language, ethnicity/race, religion, values, background, health beliefs, physical ability and much more—our physicians are able to deliver individualized treatment with a personal approach. The result is a practice that fosters the patient-physician relationship, and furthers our mission to provide culturally responsive care.
