Categorical PGY1 Schedule
The first month of residency has been split to provide experiences at our two primary sites (Banner - University Medical Center Phoenix and the Phoenix VA), as well as an inpatient and ambulatory experience. This allows for a more comprehensive orientation program and dedicated immersion.

Preliminary Medicine PGY1 Schedule
All preliminary medicine interns have at least five non-call blocks. They are used for either electives or requirements specific to your specialty. Approved residents may elect to do an elective in research. Preliminary interns do not do continuity clinic and, therefore, are not on the alternating rotation/”track” schedule. However, just like the categorical internal medicine interns, the first month of residency has been split to provide experiences at our two primary sites (Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix and the Phoenix VA). This allows for a more comprehensive orientation program and dedicated immersion.
