The Origin of Founders Day
The foundation for excellence in teaching, research, service and patient care, on behalf of the people of Arizona, was established when The University of Arizona College of Medicine was dedicated on November 17, 1967. Ceremonies before 1,500 guests celebrated nearly a decade of effort by Arizonans to build a medical school. The Basic Sciences Building opened in September 1967, just one day before the first group of 32 medical students began classes. Four years later, the Clinical Sciences Building and the University Hospital (known today as The University of Arizona Medical Center) were completed.
