Partners and Families

Banner UA Partners in Medicine Group

Banner-University of Arizona Partners in Medicine provides support, connections, and resources to the spouses, partners, and families of Banner-University of Arizona resident and fellow physicians. Recognizing that residency and fellowship can be a uniquely challenging time for a physician and his/her family, our network of spouses and partners offer a way to connect with others who are in the same stage of the medical journey. In addition to providing support and resources, we host a variety of events throughout the year to give our members an opportunity to meet each other and enjoy the company of other spouses and partners. Our goal is to create a strong community of physician families who can rely on each other as they move through their training years here in Tucson. You can find us on Facebook at:
