University of Arizona College of Medicine - Phoenix
Qué Pasa amigos? My name is Zach, and I’m a native Arizonan from right here in the valley of the sun. I grew up in northwest Phoenix, went to ASU for undergrad, U of A Phoenix for med school, and now I get to enjoy the fantastic Copa as an EM resident! Like all EM people, I’m big into the outdoors – backpacking, hiking, and climbing mostly. I’m also an avid diver, and I dabble in spearfishing when I can get out and escape to the ocean. As for the Copa, I honestly can’t say enough about the program, the faculty, the staff and the entire vibe of this place. You get free exposure to all types of training (county, community, academic) and on your off days, you get to enjoy 8 solid months of fantastic weather, as well as hiking, climbing and biking right in the middle of the city – not to mention the remarkable culture of the southwest! Love tacos? We have the best. Love pool parties? LOL, not even a competition. At the Copa, you will find people from all backgrounds with the same goal – excellent patient care. Overall, I couldn’t be happier training in a place that I love with such awesome people and in such a great environment. Come to check it out, hang with us and decide for yourself!
