ACFMRP Medical S​tudent Rotations

Abrazo Central Family Medicine Residency Program offers ​three options for professionals specializing in Family Medicine: 

Our residency offers outpatient clerkships in the Family Medicine Center and a full spectrum sub-internships at Abrazo Central Campus. Students are afforded significant responsibility and attentive teaching from Family Medicine residents and faculty.

We have affiliations with and our rotations meet the core requirements for the:

    • University of Arizona
    • Midwestern College of Osteopathic Medicine
    • Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine

Electives are available to all students in good standing from LCME and COCA accredited medical schools (U.S. and Canadian Allopathic and Osteopathic schools). We do not offer observerships or rotations to international medical students.

The Family Medicine Center at Abrazo Central Campus provides in-depth training with residents and faculty.

    • Patient volume is high
    • Students care for the full spectrum of patients and conditions, including challenging acute and chronic conditions from neonates to geriatrics
    • Students may provide health education, preventative care, prenatal care and perform procedures 

We believe students learn best by doing, not watching. With our supervision,students evaluate patients independently and review their plans with senior residents and faculty. Students are expected to learn effective charting and basic business operations such as billing and diagnosis coding.  

The clinic offers computerized access to clinical information and patient education handouts. Faculty and Medical Staff provide noon conferences on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and bimonthly education days, which include specialty and procedure clinics and hands-on procedure workshops. Continuity of care for our patients can provide experiences in the hospital, labor and delivery as well as opportunities in sports medicine, geriatrics, colposcopy and OB ultrasound.
