Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center has served as a leader in health care in the Southwest since 1911. It is the flagship of Banner Health, the largest medical system in Arizona, with facilities throughout the state.
Banner Good Samaritan is an academically oriented community hospital with more than 275 residents and fellows in all the major specialties and an enthusiastic and experienced hospital-based faculty.
Our 60-acre campus includes state-of-the-art diagnostic, emergency and support services. The Health Sciences Library houses an impressive computer laboratory and ready access to essentially all medical journals, textbooks and online resources. There is also a separate library within our Psychiatry Department with major textbooks, journals and computerized educational resources.
The clinical Psychiatry programs at Banner Good Samaritan include 22 adult inpatient beds and an attractive Outpatient Clinic with offices for each resident nearby our full-time faculty. Our active Consultation-Liaison and Emergency Psychiatric Service allows routine interaction with non-psychiatric colleagues throughout the Medical Center.
Our Psychiatry residents are exposed to a mixture of public and privately insured patients with diverse economic and socio-cultural backgrounds and every type of psychiatric illness, level of acuity and age.
Our Psychiatry Residency program also offers required and elective experiences at other well-supervised, nearby clinical sites, including the Veteran's Administration Medical Center, Phoenix Children's Hospital, a community mental health clinic, the Arizona State Hospital, Arizona State University and outreach to rural areas.
The nonprofit Banner Health System's network of 14 Arizona hospitals and three behavioral health centers offers many attractive options for those considering career opportunities in Arizona upon graduation.
