How Will We Do It?
We are challenging people to reimagine their perceptions of Phoenix and the University of Arizona. The city has become the center of a bioscience knowledge community — a collaborative environment fueling world-class discovery in medicine from bench to bedside. Downtown Phoenix offers a vibrant energy with a diverse array of places to explore. Embracing unique synergies on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, we ask leaders to reimagine this dynamic community. It’s all here.
The City of Phoenix had a bold vision — to develop a biosciences campus that would bring together visionaries in health care. These leaders would create unparalleled collaboration, build infrastructure and generate synergies. The vision is now a reality.
It’s all here. World-class researchers, innovators, clinicians, administrators and educators work in a dynamic environment dedicated to improving health care throughout Arizona — and across the world. Together, we are preparing future physician-scientists to advance health care and improve lives.
“This vision is now a reality,” said Christine Mackay, Phoenix economic development director. “Just five years ago, the economic impact of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus was estimated at $1.26 billion with the College of Medicine – Phoenix contributing $961 million. By 2025, the overall economic impact is expected to grow to $3.1 billion.”
“In partnership with our clinical and local affiliates, we chose to reimagine personalized medical education and translational research to prepare the physician of the future to make an exceptional contribution to the communities we serve. After 11 years and continued development on the downtown Phoenix Biomedical Campus, I can report that the realization of this grand vision has truly been a success for our students, faculty, partners and community.” — Guy Reed, MD, MS, Dean and Valley of the Sun Professor at the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix.
To coincide with the campaign, the college will launch the reimagine Medicine podcast on November 12.
Hosted by Jonathan Lifshitz, PhD, director of the college's Translational Neurotrauma Research Program, and Katie Brite, MD, chair of the college's Curriculum Committee and co-director of the Family Community and Preventive Medicine Clerkship, the podcast will bring together clinicians, researchers, educators, health care thought leaders and medical students to share the experiences and ideas that are fueling their efforts.
