Societies House Deans

Each medical student class is divided into four Societies Houses, named for our four beautiful Tucson mountain ranges. Each Societies House is led by a house dean, who holds regularly scheduled career counseling sessions with house members each semester. Your house dean is also available to meet one-on-one to address immediate needs and provide advice and support. When you apply to residency programs, your house dean will draft your Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) (formerly known as the "Dean’s Letter").
