Residency Programs

Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Program
The program matches one resident per year for a two-year residency.  The two residents alternate between the cardiac and thoracic surgery services. No other surgical residents or trainees on either service compete for cases.  Six midlevel practitioners (ANPs or PAs) support the two services.

General Surgery Residency Program
Our program is a 5-year, fully-accredited, non-pyramidal program with 8 categorical positions per year. Our commitment is to train young surgeons to a high level of competency in clinical and academic surgery and, most importantly, to guide them in becoming professional leaders in their field of interest.

Neurosurgery Residency Program
The University of Arizona Department of Surgery offers a seven-year integrated program of research and training in clinical neurosurgery that covers the full spectrum of neurosurgical disease, including intra-cranial vascular, stereotaxis, trauma, pain, peripheral nerve, occlusive vascular disease, functional, epilepsy, transphenoidal and pediatric neurosurgery.

Urology Residency Program
The Urology Residency Program at the University of Arizona College of Medicine offers two categorical positions every year for the five-year program. We are committed to research, and our focus lies in improving the understanding of urologic disease, minimizing surgical procedures, pioneering cures and treatments for renal, prostate, and bladder diseases through nanotechnology, fusion MRIs, precision medicine and interdisciplinary investigative work.

Vascular Surgery Residency Program
The 0-5 integrated Vascular Surgery Residency Program at the University of Arizona is designed to produce trainees well-rounded in all aspects of vascular surgery. Progressively increasing responsibility will be provided under careful attending supervision, leading to the development of thoughtful, ethical and highly competent independent practitioners of the specialty.
