Banner Good Sam Internal Medicine Residency Program
The Banner Good Samaritan Internal Medicine Residency program is based at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, a quaternary referral center for Arizona and adjoining states and is fully integrated with the Carl T. Hayden Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
This combination allows residents to care for patients with diverse backgrounds and pathology under the guidance of supportive faculty and sub-specialists strongly committed to teaching and patient care.
Both hospitals are major teaching affiliates of the University of Arizona College of Medicine with students performing their required and elective clinical clerkships. Our program attracts applicants from universities nationwide because it is highly regarded by those seeking excellent clinical training in a collegial atmosphere.
We offer fellowships in:
- Interventional Cardiology
- Medical Toxicology
- Pulmonary/Critical Care
Each hospital is a major teaching affiliate of the University of Arizona College of Medicine with students performing their required and elective clinical clerkships at both sites.
Together, the complementary clinical sites, diverse patients, close affiliation with the University of Arizona, fellowships and large core faculty creates an academic environment analogous to a university program.
Over the years many of our graduates have chosen general internal medicine as their career, either as hospitalists or ambulatory practitioners.
Others have pursued subspecialty fellowship training at our own programs or other highly competitive programs. Many of our graduates enjoy the southwestern lifestyle and take advantage of the ample practice opportunities at the local or regional level.
Although challenging, a residency and career in Internal Medicine should be rewarding and joyful. We believe that our program offers an environment conducive to this philosophy. Our residents and faculty enjoy internal medicine and are committed to learning everyday to do it better.
If you are motivated to push yourself to learn from every experience and are commited to being a productive member of the team, We encourage you to come visit our program. You will find that training in internal medicine with our program is a pleasant and educationally rewarding experience.
