The University of Arizona Health Sciences is in a unique position to effect change in a rapidly shifting health care landscape. As part of the University of Arizona’s Strategic Plan, we have developed a set of initiatives to reshape the future of health care and address critical health challenges.

We are focusing our efforts on five vitally important areas: Next-Generation Education, Precision Health Care for All, Making Wellness Ageless, Creating Defenses Against Disease, and New Frontiers for Better Health. These initiatives can be seen coming to life through a growing collection of stories under the banner of Tomorrow is here.

Through these strategic initiatives, we have unprecedented opportunities to excel in education and research in more and better ways than ever before. The strengths we possess give us an incredible advantage that we can use to improve the health and well-being of individuals in the local community, across the state of Arizona and around the world.

Because of their extensive reach, the Health Sciences strategic initiatives have been integrated across the five pillars of the University’s plan: Wildcat Journey, Grand Challenges, Arizona Advantage, Arizona Global and Institutional Excellence.
