The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix prepares students to become physicians who manage not only the science of medicine, but also the social aspects of medicine. We are committed to addressing structural inequities and impediments that prevent people from accessing health care and leading healthy lives.

Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the United States, and the population of Arizona has increased by 12 percent over the last decade, according to the United States Census Bureau data. Communities across the state are becoming more diverse, and they need physicians who reflect the patient populations they serve.

To better serve the needs of these growing communities and improve health outcomes, we need to train more physicians who are underrepresented in medicine (URM).

The Underrepresented in Medicine (URM) Scholarship will help talented students complete their medical training at the UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix and other medical schools. With your help, we will continue building healthier communities throughout Arizona.

2022 Campaign

The 2nd annual URM Scholarship Campaign began on Thursday, September 29, and ended on Monday, November 14. Like last year, our goal was to raise over $25,000 for student scholarships. Thank you for your continued support toward the education and training of our medical students.
