As of 2021, we have had nearly 200 participants in the PRIME-LC program, and more than 120 graduates.

PRIME-LC began with eight medical students the summer of 2004. To date, we have had nearly 200 participants in the program, and more than 120 physicians have graduated. PRIME-LC welcomes its students to select whichever medical specialty they prefer. Among the residencies most commonly chosen by our medical students include: Family Medicine, Emergency, Internal Medicine, Med-Peds, ObGyn, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Surgery. But our graduates have gone to other specialties including: Anesthesiology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Plastic Surgery, Radiology and Urology.

PRIME-LC became my home and family, where I received the support and training to achieve my dream to serve my community. With the skills and connections I developed — both as a medical student and in the PRIME-LC Family Medicine Residency Program — I’ve helped to develop the Health Scholars Program, a health professionals pipeline program mentoring more than 100 students in clinical and service-oriented projects in the highest-need areas of Orange County. I put my training to work every day, and help support the next generation of PRIME-LC students forge their own paths. -Marco Angulo, MD, MA, PRIME-LC Class of 2011
