Postdoctoral Residency

Cutting Edge


East Bay Consortium (Antioch, Walnut Creek, Pleasanton)

Antioch is the Gateway to the Delta, located on the banks of the San Joaquin River in Northern California. Antioch is easily accessible from major cities such as Walnut Creek and Oakland, with a convenient reverse commute that is only about 30 minutes. Antioch is geographically convenient to many parts of the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area and the greater Antioch area now has wineries to enjoy fresh local grown wine, and there are hundreds of hiking trails and beautiful bike trails to explore and adventure through. Antioch also enjoys some of the most affordable housing in the Bay Area.

Kaiser Permanente is a primary provider of medical services in this area. Our service area is one of the most diverse communities in the Bay Area, including African American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Asian Indian, Latino/a, and Caucasians.

Program Highlights

Member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC)

We have a very special clinic within Kaiser. While our clinic has grown exponentially, we have strived to maintain our culture of integration, support and cohesiveness. Clinicians are supported and encouraged to bring innovative ideas and to create new programs to serve our patients.

Our department is comprised of 4 teams: The Adult Team, the Child and Family team, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and the Chemical Dependency Services (CDS). Our medical office also offers a Behavioral Medicine Program (BMS). We have a dedicated hospital based mental health team in the Emergency Department at the Kaiser Permanente Antioch Hospital.

  • Our clinic staff is full of past residents who wanted to stay and become a part of our clinic.
  • Our office is under construction to add even more offices to meet the needs of our rapidly growing clinic.
  • While driving to or from work, you will have the frequent opportunity to feel grateful and lucky that you are zooming along in the non-commute direction.
  • Lunch time on our beautiful balcony awesome.
