A monthly newsletter to keep you connected
to AltaMed and the Family Medicine Residency Program
Dr. Reina Amiling grew up in Oceanside, CA. She is a Filipino-American, born to immigrant parents who always emphasized the importance of education and of remembering one’s cultural heritage. A former AmeriCorps scholar, she has a special interest in women’s health and adolescent medicine, but she chose family medicine because it offers her the opportunity to work with different populations and to influence the health of a community.
Why did you select
the AltaMed Family Medicine Residency Program?
I chose AltaMed because of the commitment to working with underserved communities and addressing and eradicating health care disparities.
If you could give advice to future residents, what would it be?

Choose a place that you vibe with and will support your personal and professional goals.
