The staff and students at University of Arizona’s College of Medicine in Phoenix have reason to celebrate.
The college recently recieved full accreditation, an important milestone that it has been working toward since opening in 2008.
Medical students can attend the four-year medical school program, which serves as a branch campus of the University of Arizona’s medical college in Tucson.
The Liaison Committee on Medical Education is responsible for authorizing accreditation for medical education programs that offer M.D. degrees. In 2012, the Phoenix campus earned preliminary accreditation, and provisional accreditation was granted in 2015.
The decision to grant full accreditation follows the evaluation committee’s site visit in March. This full accreditation is a reminder that students are getting a great education that allows them to be talented, valuable physicians.
Last month, 81 proud medical students were presented with their official Doctor of Medicine degrees.
