Curriculum

The Family and Community Medicine program at Yuma Regional Medical Center will prepare you to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Our three year curriculum includes four elective months, a strong focus on practice management and medical ethics, as well as patient-centered, community oriented elements in all rotations.

We offer a supportive and collaborative atmosphere so you become a well prepared graduate. The program emphasizes conscientious, evidence based healthcare and critical awareness of the role of the family physician in the continuum of care for families.
