Message from the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences


Michael D. Dake, MD
Extending the Reach of Health Sciences in 2022

When the University of Arizona Health Sciences began to take shape 55 years ago, we started with a new College of Medicine in Tucson and then added the long-established Colleges of Nursing and Pharmacy, which moved from the main university campus to our Health Sciences campus in Tucson a few years later. By the mid 2000s, we had grown to include the College of Public Health and the College of Medicine in Phoenix.
