The College of Medicine – Tucson is leading the way in education, research and patient care

Our progressive curriculum is shaping culturally competent physicians with a global knowledge of health care. Our interdisciplinary research teams are making discoveries to deliver precision medicine, particularly in the areas of children’s medicine, the heart, cancer and local diseases such as Valley Fever. And compassionate clinical care is extended to underserved community members by students working under the supervision of faculty physicians.

Your support helps us prepare our students for the myriad complex health issues they will one day see. Gifts to the College of Medicine – Tucson enable us to recruit exceptional faculty talent who will perform groundbreaking research and provide outstanding medical training and patient care.
