Banner Good Samaritan Family Medicine Residency  

Clinical Information

 

As in all Family Medicine residencies, our education is divided between inpatient and outpatient sites. The core learning experience involves treating patients and their families in the Family Medicine Center in increasing amounts of time over three years. We offer a number of experiences which we believe add to the quality of our program. These include:
