The structure of the clinical experiences during Internal Medicine residency training at UA College of Medicine – Phoenix has been designed to optimize learning, minimize fatigue and reduce conflict between inpatient and ambulatory experiences. Residents are given progressive responsibility and autonomy through the sequencing of the rotations and through the demonstration of their competence.

Non-call rotations (Emergency Medicine, Neurology, Cardiology, Geriatrics, Consultative Medicine, ambulatory medicine and electives) alternate with call months (night float, inpatient wards and ICU) during all three categorical years.

Continuity clinic is generally only done during two half days per week during non-call months for all levels of categorical IM residents. Practice partners are responsible for each others' patients while the other is on a rotation without clinic.
