Facilities and Resources
The major Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology training sites are Banner – University Medical Center Tucson and South clinical facilities (on right), Banner – University Medicine North, Building 2 (at left), and the Southern Arizona VA Healthcare System (SAVAHCS), with its flagship Tucson VA Medical Center.
