PGY1 UAMC South Campus: Overview
The University of Arizona Medical Center - South Campus is a 197-licensed bed hospital, with an average census of 130 patients. This campus is the newest addition to serve as the academic medical center for the University of Arizona. It includes teaching and research facilities for the University of Arizona colleges of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and public health, along with physicians’ offices and specialized medical treatment centers.
The South Campus serves as a major provider of behavioral health services for the southern Arizona community. In the Fall of 2011, a new behavioral health pavilion opened to provide psychiatric specific care in the form of an emergency department, private inpatient rooms, outpatient services, classroom and teaching facilities, and a courtroom for those patients admitted through the legal system. Currently, the hospital has about 60 inpatient psychiatric beds with plans to expand.
In addition to the inpatient services, the South Campus is affiliated with several multi-specialty clinics to promote continuity of care and provide outpatient services. Clinics include cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine, OB/GYN, surgery, infectious diseases/HIV, psychiatry, sports medicine, toxicology, pain management, and rheumatology infusion clinic.
South Campus is the home to several medical residency programs: emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, neurology, and ophthalmology. This provides a productive environment for teaching and collaborative patient care teams.
