Meeting Our Mission

Residents Serving the Community

Mobile Health
Our mobile health program provides health care to those who have difficulty accessing healthcare in other ways. Supervised by our faculty, residents rotate through mobile health prenatal and family medicine clinics in a longitudinal fashion throughout residency.

Sideline Coverage in Sports
In partnership with our Sports Medcine Fellows and Faculty, residents are able to volunteer to provide sideline coverage at many school sporting events around the city.

TFAP
The Tucson Family Advocacy Program (TFAP) is a partnership of health care providers and lawyers working together to improve the health and wellbeing of low-income patients and their families.
Through collaboration with TFAP, our residents have been able to help many refugees obtain citizenship, families secure better housing, and help patients with advanced care planning in a compassionate, safe, and thorough manner.
