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).
