Internal Medicine Residency at Banner University Medical Center – South Campus

The University of Arizona College of Medicine – South Campus Internal Medicine Residency Program is located in beautiful Tucson, AZ. We are an ACGME-accredited program based out of the Banner – University Medical Center South campus. We provide compassionate, cost-effective and evidence-based medical care to our patients.

Diversity of clinical exposures is the core of our program. We provide residents a unique experience in the care of urban, rural and underserved populations. Residents are provided ample learning opportunities and individualized attention from our renowned physicians and clinical staff in part due to our low faculty-to-resident ratio. The small size of our program and closeness of our residents is what attracts many residency candidates.

Starting in 2008, we began our physician training program with 10 residents. We now have 30 residents, 10 per program year (PGY1-3) class. We currently also enjoy a 94 percent ABIM board passage rate.

Our fellowship placement rate is high as well. Every PGY3 who applied for a fellowship this year got their top pick, with two accepting a pre-match position.
