Message from the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences


Michael D. Dake, MD
Looking Back, Looking Ahead

It has been said, “Tough times never last, but tough people do.”

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.
