Internal Medicine Residency

HonorHealth’s Internal Medicine Residency Program at Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center is slated to begin with its inaugural class in July 2016. HonorHealth is a learning organization focused on the patients and communities we serve.

Our program focus is teaching residents the balance between the science and art of medicine while preparing residents for real-life practice. We accomplish this by incorporating practical business knowledge of healthcare delivery systems within the curriculum.

Our long-term goal is to create highly qualified physicians who will stay and work in the communities we serve — whether it’s primary care, hospital medicine or sub-specialty care.

Based at the beautiful Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center in north Scottsdale, Arizona, the program provides:

  • A diverse faculty.
  • A state-of-the-art simulation center.
  • An ambulatory center equipped with a full-service laboratory, as well as onsite diagnostic imaging that includes CT and MRI.
