AZCentral

Dr. Guy Reed, the dean of UArizona's College of Medicine - Phoenix and BIO5 member, discusses the colleges decision to increase its class size from 80 to 100 medical students. The increase comes after the Arizona Legislature approved $8 million last legislative session to fund the expanded class. This decision was necessary, as the already dire physician shortage is expected to intensify within the decade due to Arizona’s fast growing population.
