Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Abrazo Health recognized physicians completing the health network’s emergency medicine, general surgery, internal medicine and family medicine residencies during graduation ceremonies on June 8.

Graduate Medical Education programs, representatives say, reflect Abrazo Health’s support of teaching and research in its hospitals across the greater Phoenix area.

Some 55 percent of physicians completing residency programs in Arizona remain in the state after graduation, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.

Abrazo Health began educating primary care physicians in 1978 through its Family Medicine residency at Abrazo Central Campus. Internal Medicine and General Surgery residences were added in 2019 at Abrazo Arrowhead Campus, followed by Emergency Medicine at Abrazo West Campus and Transitional Year residencies in 2020. Cardiovascular Disease and Infectious Disease Fellowships were added in 2022 and 2023.

Abrazo’s residencies and fellowships are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, a press release states.

“Arizona’s need for physicians is well documented and we are very proud of these residents. They will now go into the community as the next generation of physicians and healthcare leaders,” said Dr. Akil Loli, an interventional cardiologist and designated institutional official for Graduate Medical Education at Abrazo Health.
