Rural Rotations

One of the unique aspects of the University of Arizona Family Medicine Residency Program’s South Campus track is the rural rotation requirement. Residents have the opportunity to choose from a number of excellent clinical sites depending on their own interests and plans for future practice. We want to provide you with hand-on experiences in rural areas with the hope that you will consider future practice in a rural location.

In addition to well-rounded training received at the Banner – University Medical Center South Campus hospital, residents complete required block rotations in each of the following areas: family medicine, emergency medicine, obstretrics, gynecology, pediatrics, MSK/rheumatology and have the opportunity to do rural electives and special sites.

For your required rural rotations, your housing, round-trip mileage, and food are provided by a grant from the Arizona Area Health Education Centers (AHEC).
