Message from the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences


Michael D. Dake, MD
Looking Back, Looking Ahead

As we bring the 2020-2021 academic year to a close and make final preparations for graduation, I want to thank the faculty, staff and administrators at our five University of Arizona Health Sciences colleges for their extraordinary toughness this difficult year.
