Message from the Vice Chair

Quality education is a high priority for both, the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine – Tucson and the Department of Medicine. We seek to support and enhance the academic and professional journeys of our students, trainees and faculty in every way possible.

The Department of Medicine Educational Office assists in oversight of two distinct ACGME-accredited Residency Programs in Internal Medicine, the Dermatology Residency Program, 15 ACGME-accredited fellowships, and training for more than 130 residents and 70 fellows. We offer a wide variety of comprehensive training opportunities supervised by boarded, dedicated and nationally renowned faculty.

The University of Arizona is a truly outstanding institution in which to learn, work and flourish. With nearly 175 faculty members, the Medical Education Office is committed to the professional growth of our current faculty through the introduction of recent mentoring and leadership initiatives. Expanded basic and clinical research initiatives offer a chance to learn and be a part of cutting-edge advances in health care being developed here.

For greater insight into our training sites and unique learning opportunities with our faculty and national collaborators, please refer to our subspecialty Education, Research and/or Patient Care sections.
