Why did you choose UA Family Medicine?
I chose to pursue residency at the University of Arizona Family Medicine Residency Program because of the welcoming and supportive environment created by the faculty, residents, and support staff during my away rotation and on interview day. This program offers amazing opportunities in academic medicine, integrative medicine, and rural/global health. But the people really make it special.
