Residency Programs

The UA Department of Family and Community Medicine has been providing excellence in resident training for more than 40 years. We offer two unique, separately-accredited Family Medicine Residency programs. Residents enjoy clinical medicine and clinical research opportunities, numerous fellowship and advanced degree programs, excellent benefits and a diverse and talented faculty. 

Please note, if you want to apply to both residencies, you must apply to each one separately, using their unique ERAS IDs.

Both programs offer a strong and busy inpatient experience, outpatient practices with diverse and underserved populations, and the option to participate in the Health Care Disparities/Medical Spanish Distinction Track.
