The University of Arizona's College of Medicine announced Friday that it will give free tuition to students who agree to practice primary care in underserved communities.

To be eligible for free tuition as early as this spring, students must pledge to practice primary care for at least two years after completing their residency. That continuous commitment has to start within six years of graduating from medical school and completed within 10 years of graduating.

"Arizona needs nearly 600 primary care physicians today, and the number is expected to grow to more than 1,900 by 2030," Dr. Michael Dake, senior vice president for the University of Arizona Health Sciences, wrote in the release.

"As the state's only two designated medical schools, the College of Medicine - Tucson and the College of Medicine - Phoenix are taking full advantage of the public investment approved by our state legislators, who recognize the time to address this shortage is now," he added.
