- Pediatric care at the Diamond Children's Hospital
Both clinical sites feature teaching and research activity:

- Research faculty from the Arizona Emergency Medicine Research Center (AEMRC) are directing clinical trials in pre-hospital and neurologic emergency services at sites throughout Southern Arizona.
Emergency Medicine faculty also provide medical direction for the Tucson Fire Department, paramedics, emergency management services, and staff sports medicine and toxicology clinics at the South Campus.
