Abrazo Family Medicine Residency Medical Student Rotations
Abrazo Family Medicine Residency Program offers three options for professionals specializing in Family Medicine:
Medical Student Rotations
Our residency offers outpatient clerkships in the Family Medicine Center and sub-internships in hospital medicine 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 College of Medicine
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.
Family Medicine Clerkship
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 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
and OB ultrasound.
