Residency Curriculum

HonorHealth Academic Affairs Family Residency - Classroom.

As the only residency program based at HonorHealth Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center, the Family Medicine Residency receives strong support from a highly skilled medical staff.

Since each resident has multiple interests and because future graduate practice settings vary, our program provides a flexible competency-based curriculum. It includes areas of concentration for:

  • The underserved.
  • Hospitalist medicine.
  • Rural medicine.
  • Sports medicine.
  • Obstetrics.
  • Geriatrics.
  • Faculty development, palliative care, research, and urgent care/emergency medicine.

If you're an osteopathic resident physician, you can hone your osteopathic manipulative treatment skills in conjunction with our structured osteopathic medicine curriculum.

Elective Rotations

Robust elective rotation opportunities cover the entire scope of family medicine. You have the ability to create additional elective educational experiences that focus on areas of interest to you.
