University of Arizona College of Medicine - Phoenix Fast Facts
The University of Arizona, Arizona State University and the Arizona Board of Regents agreed to expand the Phoenix campus of The University of Arizona College of Medicine to a full, four-year program with a historic Memorandum of Understanding in August 2004. The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix in partnership with Arizona State University admitted its first class of first-year medical students in 2007.
The curriculum features an interactive teaching approach and an emphasis on biomedical informatics – the scientific field that deals with the storage, retrieval, sharing and optimal use of biomedical information, data and knowledge for problem solving and decision making. Students are prepared for scholarly projects in one of four concentration areas: biomedical informatics; medical ethics and medical humanities; molecular medicine; and public health, population medicine, policy and prevention.
Located in downtown Phoenix, this campus will serve a key role in addressing Arizona’s shortage of physicians, pharmacists and other health professionals. The buildings that are home to the medical college are three of the original Phoenix Union High School buildings, built circa 1910, before Arizona was a state.
