Message from the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences

Dr. Marvin Slepian Receives Much-Deserved Appointment as Regents' Professor
On behalf of the entire UA Health Sciences, I would like to express congratulations to our esteemed colleague Marvin Slepian, MD, for his much-deserved appointment as a Regents’ Professor, a title awarded to full professors who have the most distinguished accomplishments in teaching, scholarship, research or creative work.

A professor of medicine, cardiology and medical imaging, Dr. Slepian was appointed April 11 by the Arizona Board of Regents. These prestigious appointments are limited to no more than 3 percent of the university’s tenured and tenure-track faculty members and only four other UA professors received this title for 2019.
