‘We’ve created a tremendous learning environment at Kaweah Delta’
Visialia Times-Delta

Dr. Ty Philipson celebrated his final shift in the Kaweah Delta Medical Center emergency room Wednesday evening. The shift came after three years of strenuous work in the district’s first residency program.

Philipson, along with 11 other resident physicians, began his journey with the district in 2013.

“There’s like a brotherhood,” he said about the program. “ER medicine is a team effort. I’m excited and sad at the same time.”

Kaweah Delta welcomed the first 12 resident physicians into the new program, which at the time offered family medicine and emergency medicine, to help fix a serious Valleywide problem.
