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. 

The class of 2024 now enters the workforce to help meet a critical need for physicians in the community, according to a press release.

Graduate Medical Education programs reflect Abrazo’s support of teaching and research in its hospitals across the greater Phoenix area, the release stated. Some 55% 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. Abrazo’s residencies and fellowships are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the release stated. 

“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,” Dr. Akil Loli, an interventional cardiologist and designated institutional official for Graduate Medical Education at Abrazo Health, stated in the release
