Student Perspectives

  • "I love the College of Medicine – Phoenix! I love the progressive curriculum with the option of studying independently through Panopto. I love the early clinical exposure through the Community Clinical Experience and Community Health Initiative – Phoenix (CHIP) hours, as well as the heavy clinical focus provided by the Doctoring course. I also wanted a program that had a research component, which our Scholarly Project fills. The campus is state-of-the art, and the school maintains relationships with many diverse clinical sites around the Valley, so we have the opportunity to work with many providers in many settings." — Melissa T., Class of 2020
  • "The staff and faculty really care about the students, and they practice the values they preach. They are kind, empathetic, nonjudgmental and encourage the importance of trying, even in the face of failure. The support and openness here is amazing, as are the resources and opportunities open to students. I received ten acceptances to medical schools, but I knew when I interviewed here that I couldn't imagine a better place to set the foundation for my future medical career." — Maggie X., Class 2021
