The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix is steadfast in our commitment to embrace the four pillars of our strategic plan: to elevate the value and distinction of our medical education; to enhance the translation of research to benefit patients; to build outstanding clinical programs; and to work collaboratively to advance the health and well-being of our communities.

Central to the fourth pillar is supporting programs that allow us to serve the metro Phoenix community where we live, work and raise our families.
