Message from the Director

It’s been a decade now since our inaugural group of residents joined us in the UA College of Medicine – South Campus Internal Medicine Residency Program.

Residents here rotate largely between the clinical facilities of our two primary teaching hospitals, the Banner – University Medical Center (UMC) – South and Banner – UMC Tucson campuses, as well as multispecialty adult outpatient clinics at South Campus and the new Banner – University Medicine North (Building 2).

Our goal is to prepare residents to be well grounded in internal medicine and who will excel in and enjoy what they do. We provide exceptional individualized training in part due to our high faculty-to-resident ratio.

Core didactic sessions include Morning Report, Grand Rounds, Academic Half Day, Board Review, Journal Club, Morbidity & Mortality Conference, and Simulation Lab. We are very proud that our residents obtain top awards at ACP-sponsored regional and national events. In addition, a large percentage of our residents present papers, abstracts and posters at national meetings.

Upon completion of the program, the majority of our residents obtain their top fellowship choices, too. Our program provides a platform for house staff to develop excellent clinical skills and attain their professional goals.

If you’re a medical student, we hope you will seriously consider the Internal Medicine Residency Program at the UA College of Medicine – South Campus. We look forward to meeting you during your interview, working with you during your residency and visiting with you when you come back to see us afterward.

We love to hear how our residents have grown in all phases of their careers.
