UMEC Spotlight on Faculty Development: Brian MacArthur, MD
The Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics recently profiled Brian MacArthur, MD, the Obstetrics and Gynecology medical student site director at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix and a clinical assistant professor at the college.
Dr. MacArthur is new to medical student education, but described medical students as the, "heroes of the health care system."
Founded in 2007, the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix inspires and trains exemplary physicians, scientists and leaders to optimize health and health care in Arizona and beyond. By cultivating collaborative research locally and globally, the college accelerates discovery in a number of critical areas — including cancer, stroke, traumatic brain injury and cardiovascular disease. Championed as a student-centric campus, the college has graduated 433 physicians, all of whom received exceptional training from nine clinical partners and 1,800 diverse faculty members. As the anchor to the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, which is projected to have an economic impact of $3.1 billion by 2025, the college prides itself on engaging with the community, fostering education, inclusion, access and advocacy.
