from Family Medicine residents and faculty.

Family Medicine Clerkship
The Family Medicine Residency Clinic 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 will provide health education, preventative care, acute and chronic care, as well as 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 presentations and treatment plans.
The clinic offers computerized access to clinical information and patient education handouts. Faculty and Medical Staff provide noon conferences on Monday through Thursday and weekly Wednesday afternoon didactics. Continuity of care for our patients can
provide experiences in the hospital, as well as opportunities in sports medicine, geriatrics, colposcopy, colonoscopy, wound care, auricular acupuncture and OB ultrasound.
We have affiliations with the below Medical Schools:
University of Arizona College of Medicine
Midwestern College of Osteopathic Medicine
Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine
