"I would recommend this rotation to anyone willing to work hard, who loves to see patients and DO. The attendings are incredible teachers and are very experienced with having students. They teach by allowing you to do as much as you are comfortable with - it is a very encouraging, motivating, challenging environment. I would not trade my experience in Safford for anything. The four primary family medicine attendings there are fantastic teachers, each with their own styles, which I appreciated as you are able to see different ways something can be done and figure out which way works best for you."
"Dr. Jones keeps students involved in all aspects of patient care. She has the best interactions with patients I have seen so far in medicine. Terrific attending."
"Broad range of experiences." "It was the best overall rotation I've had so far. I learned a lot, was exposed to everything that my attending did."
"Wonderful docs, wonderful patients, enjoyed being involved in surgeries, and getting to know families. Broad spectrum of disease states. I enjoyed working in the hospital, too."
