Sacramento Valley Consortium (South Sacramento and Roseville/Sacramento)

Roseville is a northern suburb of Sacramento. Sacramento was named America’s most diverse city by Time Magazine in 2002. In 2018 Sacramento was ranked 6th in the nation. Given Roseville’s proximity to Sacramento, Roseville has the benefit and feel of a large diverse city, while still offering the best of a suburban city, including world dining, arts, retail.

We serve more than 665,000 KP members in Roseville and Sacramento Areas and combined more than 875,000 in greater Sacramento area.

Program Highlights

The North Valley Way focuses on (1) providing value to our patients; (2) engaging all physicians and staff in working toward our shared purpose; and (3) encour­aging problem solving by physicians and staff who know and do the work. The focus on value to the patient includes removing redundant steps and variation, so we can provide the “Best Care, Every Patient Every Time.”

This is our “True North,” and we share this mission and vision as a department with our North Valley Medical Center. We also share the organization’s mission statement: “to be the best place to work and the best place to receive care.” As a training team we are proud to have this be our guide in all we do.

  • The Roseville training program is part of the North Valley Service Area. We are the largest service area in Northern CA – caring for over six-hundred-thousand patients last year, with approximately 10% receiving mental health services. As a result, we serve a very diverse group of patients, which greatly enhances clinical training opportunities.
  • We are very proud of our “Academic Family Tree.” Many of our current staff are former trainees!
  • Our medical center is planning to open a Family Medicine Residency Program and a Psychiatry Medical Residency Program, which will allow increased focused on integrated care training for our psychology trainees.

We seek individuals who have a desire to learn from some of the best therapists in the area, a flexible style that allows one to pivot and be part of a team in a large department, the understanding that this last protected training experience is the bridge to your career as an independently licensed provider, and the ability to embrace work-life balance.
