Our Program

Northwest Healthcare’s Internal Medicine Residency Program is a community-based internal medicine training program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME: 1400300004).

Our residency program is accepting applications for our first class of residents to start in July 1, 2023. We are currently recruiting a PGY1 class of thirteen residents within the NRMP Match. Soon we will shift gears to recruit seven PGY2 residents as well. Once our program is fully built, we will have a full complement of 39 residents in the program.

Northwest Healthcare has a lot to offer residents. Our community teaching hospital system consists of four community hospitals, two free standing emergency departments and three urgent care centers in the greater Tucson metropolitan area. Northwest Transitions is an acute rehabilitation facility located on the campus of Northwest Medical Center. Northwest Primary & Specialty Care Physicians, our multi-specialty group, consists of nearly 100 providers in 25 clinic locations throughout the region.

Additionally, because Tucson is the largest metropolitan area in southern Arizona, we’re a referral center for much of the region from Tucson south to the Mexican border and into Southern New Mexico. This allows us to introduce resident physicians to a wide range of medical management, treatment and support services.

Residents receive firsthand experience with a wealth of patient care opportunities and a diverse patient population through an innovative approach to internal medicine residency training that balances education, training, and well-being.

As we move closer to July of 2023 and the start of our Internal Medicine residency program, all of us at Northwest Healthcare look forward to the addition of resident physician learners within our community teaching hospital system. Our leadership is committed to fostering dynamic learning environments, and our diverse allopathic and osteopathic faculty, with extensive medical education experience, are ready to guide you on your career path. A robust educational experience and the opportunity to explore your career interests is yours at Northwest Healthcare!
