The selection of students is aligned with the mission and core values of the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. Our core values include: Collaboration, Community, Diversity, Excellence, Innovation, Integrity, and Servant Leadership. While all values are critical to our success, championing diversity is a core value within our mission, as we believe acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing, nurturing and celebrating differences in people best meets the needs of the communities we serve and is critical in the selection of our students.
To accomplish meeting our core values in the application process, our medical school follows a holistic review of each applicant. This includes a thorough review of the personal attributes, professional experiences, and academic preparedness each candidate presents. Moreover, additional requirements (citizenship, essential qualifications, residency requirements, and background check) are verified prior to acceptance. Each of these components are paramount to your success and central to our medical school to ensure we meet our mission and hold to our core values.
