More About the Program

AZCOM's patient-centered didactic curriculum and early clinical experiences prepare you for challenging clinical rotations with our strong medical partners throughout the Southwest region. Our professional clinical educators know it's important for you to follow them not only in hospitals but also in their private practices. And you'll see your value to a diverse population when you're able to put your skills to work in rural and underserved urban communities.

In the past five years, nearly 98 percent of AZCOM students passed the COMLEX Part I exam the first time — exceeding the national average by more than five percent — so it's no surprise our graduates earn residency positions at outstanding health care facilities such as the Beaumont A.M.C., Middleton N.M.C., Travis A.F.B., Navy Medical Center, Tripler A.M.C, Wright Patterson A.F.B., Madigan A.M.C., SAUSHEC, Dewitt A.M.C., Scott A.F.B., Walter Reed National M.M.C., Eglin, A.F.B., and Lackland M.C.,  Mountain Vista Medical Center, Phoenix Baptist Hospital, Banner Good Samaritan, Maricopa County Medical Center, Scottsdale Healthcare, Kingman Regional Medical Center, St. Joseph's, Verde Valley Medical Center, Tucson Medical Center, University of Arizona Medical Center, Sierra Vista Regional Health Center, Phoenix Children s Hospital, Henry Ford, OUCOM/Doctors Hospital, Genesys, Doctor's Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Yale, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Loyola University Medical Center, UC Davis, Thomas Jefferson University, George Washington University, Drexel University.
