The University of Arizona College of Medicine- Tucson, seeks a PGY-2 resident to join our program, commencing July 1, 2024.

Our mission is to recruit and train a diverse group of physicians to become expert pediatricians committed to providing superior medical care to infants, children and adolescents.  Our training environment promotes high quality care and graduated autonomy within a comprehensive and personally rewarding educational experience that will allow pursuit of primary care, sub-specialty, academic or public health careers. Community integration diversifies our training experiences and provides residents the opportunity to care for patients from varied ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our proximity to the border is perfect for individuals interested in border health. The UArizona Pediatric Residency Program is dedicated to providing a supportive, anti-racist, and culturally diverse environment for our residents, faculty and patients.

Banner University Medical Center-Tucson, Diamond Children’s Medical Center is a tertiary referral center that provides comprehensive subspecialty care. It is a Level 1 Trauma Center, the only pediatric trauma center in Southern Arizona, and has a Pediatric ED and a 24 bed PICU as well as a Level 4 NICU.

Tucson offers the best of both worlds—a vibrant city of 1 million people surrounded by the unsurpassable natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Tucson has everything you’d want in a metropolitan city—a wide variety of restaurants (some of the best Mexican food north of the border!), a strong performing arts community, a thriving music scene, and many sporting events, yet the laid-back, relaxed lifestyle of a small town. Due to its unique blend of Native American, Spanish, Mexican American, and Anglo-American influences, Tucson has a rich cultural heritage, apparent throughout the city’s architecture, public art, music, and festivals.
