Phoenix Baptist Family Medicine Residency

Phoenix Baptist Family Medicine Residency Curriculum

The following curriculum information represents what is required of residents; it is not all-inclusive nor does it list all academic performance measures or graduation standards. PBH reserves the right to temporarily restructure resident duties for those with acute illness, injury, or other circumstances of a temporary nature.

Our comprehensive residency program is three years in length. You will be prepared with extensive medical knowledge and patient care experiences as well as gain a high level of confidence that will allow you to continue on your journey and seek opportunities for continued learning in new areas of practice. We challenge you to reach new confidence levels across the wide spectrum of care in the areas listed below.

  • Medicine skills: Provide full-spectrum medical care for patients in multiple settings; including outpatient, inpatient, ICU and long-term care.
  • Maternal Child Health: Deliver babies and care for them, assist/perform cesarean sections, and practice ultrasound exams.
  • Pediatrics: Care for newborns and toddlers, well and sick children and provide guidance for adolescents.
  • Orthopedics: Interpret X-rays, evaluate and set a fracture, and manage patients until full function is restored.
