The Department of Family and Community Medicine has been providing excellence in resident training for more than 40 years. We have one ACGME accredited Family Medicine program with two separate and unique tracks – The Alvernon track and the South Campus track. Both tracks offer a 2+2 curriculum, a strong and busy inpatient experience, outpatient practices with diverse and underserved populations, point-of-care ultrasound training (POCUS), dedicated refugee clinics, and the option to participate in the Health Care Disparities/Medical Spanish Distinction Track. Our South Campus track emphasizes rural practice and includes required rural rotations. Our Alvernon track focuses on the Tucson community and surrounding areas. Please note, if you want to apply to both tracks, you must apply to each one separately, using their unique ERAS IDs.
Our Mission: To prepare full-spectrum family physicians from diverse backgrounds dedicated to social justice and health equity to provide family-centered, community-responsive care for rural, underserved, and vulnerable populations.
