Banner Good Samaritan is a recognized and accredited teaching hospital, training more than 250 physicians each year, many of whom continue to practice in Arizona once their residencies are completed.
We provide residents with a solid academic foundation in major medical areas as well as specialties not available in most hospitals.
A cornerstone of the medical education program is the hands-on training provided in specialty centers on the campus of Banner Good Samaritan. These clinics are managed by knowledgeable, highly-skilled faculty physicians, many of whom are specialists in their fields, who provide direct patient care and deliver valuable training to resident physicians. To promote the learning environment, resident physicians are encouraged to spend extra time with their patients, performing comprehensive evaluations. Residents then confer with faculty physicians.
As a nonprofit, many of Banner Good Samaritan’s specialty centers offer a sliding-scale fee structure to qualifying patients. Each center is on the campus of Banner Good Samaritan, which is convenient if a patient require admission or additional diagnostic testing.
