The College was created as a result of extraordinary collaboration within the community in the spirit of addressing the health care needs of Arizona. Collaboration with world-class clinical and community partners, coupled with the ever-expanding Phoenix Biomedical Campus, the College is a tremendous resource for Phoenix, as well as all of Arizona.

The College believes it is essential to be an active, integral, embedded and highly valued leader in the community. The College aspires to continually give back by making a real difference as an exceptional servant and partner. The College proudly serves, reaches, touches and impacts diverse people and organizations in our valley-wide community that is 4.5 million people strong.

Through community involvement, outreach and education programs and events such as science programs for underserved children at the Arizona Science Center to students serving patients at Wesley Community and Health Center, and public programs such as Mini-Medical School, students, staff, faculty and fellows share knowledge and nurture all aspects of its diverse community.
