Message from Dr. Karp

Message from Dr. Karp

We are living in extraordinary times in which leaders in psychiatric medicine are needed more than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic, the imperative to fight racism and make our world more equitable, and for all to have access to personalized healthcare requires creative, well-trained psychiatrist leaders to help improve the world through clinical care, education, and research.

The Department of Psychiatry leads efforts to comprehensively prevent and treat psychiatric disorders, conduct cutting-edge research, and prepare future clinicians through rigorous, experiential education. Our commitment to social justice and anti-racism focuses our dedication to serving Southern Arizona’s diverse patient populations.
