Comments from Students: 

""I enjoyed being able to work one on one with a physician"

"It was a great experience and I would highly encourage any student to do a rotation there regardless of specialty interest or rural vs urban interest."

"The location was fantastic. I wanted to see if Flagstaff (or similar setting) would be the right fit for me in the future. I was really pleased with the city. The staff and physicians were also great at the clinic. They were kind, patient, and I learned a great deal about how I'd like to practice medicine. I learned something from each of their styles, and felt very welcome in the clinic."

 

Comments from Faculty: 

"We're a non-profit community health center, so we do everything that walks in the door. We do take a lot of AHCCCS patients, a lot of Medicare patients and everything in between. Cross-cultural sensitivity training is a huge part of what we do."
