The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix is always looking for new ways to collaborate with those in the community.

This collaborative spirit is a vital aspect of the work being conducted here, as it allows for new avenues of exploration and understanding that can improve quality care. Discovering solutions to today's health care questions — which, in turn, further enables our researchers to prepare for the problems of tomorrow — propels that mission forward.

Throughout the college, our researchers are teaming up with physicians, researchers and industry leaders from public and private enterprises to push the boundaries of discovery and advance health. Our shared goal is to translate discoveries into medicines and knowledge that will improve the health of people in Arizona and worldwide.
