Why Arizona and Banner Good Sam: The people in this program! I was also looking for a program that placed a large emphasis on evidence-based medicine and trained residents for full spectrum medicine.  Since there is a Level 1 trauma center, I feel this is a perfect environment to learn Family Medicine. As mentioned before, the people in this program are absolutely hands down some of the most incredible individuals I have ever worked with. I’m so happy to be here at Family Medicine.
