MD Program Components

An outstanding medical education

Our progressive curriculum takes a holistic view of the body and of medical knowledge. Clinical training begins early in the educational program, and basic science lessons continue during the clinical years. 

Broad educational community

As the largest of the four colleges in the Arizona Health Sciences Center, our students benefit from local and statewide interprofessional programs that tackle real-life problems.

MedLearn Online

The College of Medicine provides iPads to all students.

MD Distinction Tracks

Enhance your medical school education with an MD Distinction Track in one of several areas.

Societies Program mentorship

Students at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson participate in professional learning communities known as Societies. Within the Societies Program, small groups of students work with each other and a faculty mentor throughout all four years of medical school.


Every student at the College of Medicine – Tucson will have the opportunity to design and successfully complete a hypothesis-driven research Scholarly Project (SP). Students work closely with mentors throughout the four years of their project. Through this process students learn about medical information literacy, life-long learning, teamwork, effective communication, research methods, evidence-based medicine approaches and ethics related to scholarly inquiry.
