Banner Good Samaritan Surgery Residency  



An "education-first" philosophy has long been established and adhered to by voluntary faculty and house officers alike within the Phoenix Integrated Surgical Residency. As such, all residents (except, of course, those assigned to the Alaska Native Medical Center) are able to attend the following morning conferences, held at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center:


  • (A) Selected Readings


  • Grand Rounds


  • Basic Sciences Conference (Textbook of Surgery by Schwartz)

Additionally, institution-specific Morbidity & Mortality conferences are held on Tuesdays (Veterans Hospital) and Wednesdays (Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and Banner Estrella Medical Center). There are also a variety of specialty-based conferences that you can attend while assigned to that specific rotation.  These include, but are hardly limited to:

  • Trauma/ICU Rounds (Mondays at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center)
  • Vascular Conferences (Mondays at Veterans Hospital)
  • Trauma/ICU Conference (Wednesdays at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center)
  • Vascular Journal Club (second Thursday of the month at Banner Good Samaritan)
  • General Surgery Journal Club (fourth Thursday of the month at Banner Good Samarian)
  • Multi-Disciplinary Conference (Fridays at Veterans Hospital)

Finally, through curricula offered at the 9,000 square-foot Banner Simulation Education Center, our house officers have access to cutting-edge simulation technology to hone their skills in a variety of clinical scenarios, including trauma care, patient arrests, and minimal access surgical procedures.
