Why U of A FM at SC?: The mission of the program is my personal mission in life: to serve rural Arizona. Starting intern year, our rotations took us to Small Town, Arizona and our rotations (rural OB, rural ER, rural Family Medicine) reinforce our direction to be full spectrum physicians. the training is one of a kind in the state and in the nation. I love it.
