Admissions and Recruitment
Glen Fogerty, PhD, MBA
Associate Dean, Admissions and Recruitment
Assistant Professor, Bioethics and Medical Humanism
Helping shape the future of our medical community. What a humble position our admissions team — and all those that support us — finds ourselves in. I am fortunate to support the efforts of our Office of Admissions and Recruitment, hold a faculty position in our Department of Bioethics and Medical Humanism, direct the MD/MBA program and serve as a co-block director for the first medical school course — Introduction to Medicine. What I appreciate the most about these various roles is the opportunity to truly engage with our community and — most importantly — being able to build individual relationships with our incoming students. Our students are our future and it is an honor helping them realize their life-long goals.
My work primarily involves advising and recruiting future health care leaders to the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix. I’m lucky enough to collaborate with a talented team of individuals dedicated to this same goal. I look forward to learning how you realized your path to medicine through our holistic admissions review process!
Mark David Priolo
As operations manager, I’m responsible for making data-driven decisions and capturing key information to help improve the processes and policies of the Admissions and Recruitment team. My favorite times of the year are the big milestones in our medical students’ lives, where all their hard work, dedication and passion for medicine helps them reach their goals — White Coat Ceremony, Commencement and Match Day! I am truly fortunate to work with the admissions team, where I can support our future students and the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix community.
I have the amazing opportunity to work with high school and undergraduate students interested in a career in medicine through our pipeline programs at the College of Medicine – Phoenix, including programs like Saturday Scrubs, Summer Scrubs and Pre-Medical Academy. You can also find me supporting the Admissions and Recruitment team by visiting local schools and providing programming to middle- and high-school students, something I’ve been involved in for over 16 years.
Manager, Pipeline Initiatives
Coordinator, Event Operations and Finance
Much of my role involves working directly with our MD classes and prospective students through events. I work behind the scenes to showcase our school through events and to make sure our team has the resources they need to recruit our future health care leaders. The passion I see for the UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, our community and medicine inspires me every day, and I love seeing students achieve their dreams.
I act as a liaison to faculty, staff, students, alumni, patients, outside agencies and the public regarding any questions they may have about the admissions process. I also assist Dr. Fogerty with the Admissions Committee by running reports, maintaining files and preparing minutes. I am also thrilled to be the main contact for our candidates and help them through the application process.
Sam Kimura Blair
Coordinator, Admissions Administration
My primary responsibility is to oversee the processing, evaluation and updating of applications for our MD and MD/PhD program. As an Admissions Team member, my main goal is to support current and future applicants, faculty, staff and community members with all aspects of the application process. I look forward to supporting future health care providers by creating the best applicant experience.
