The Differential

We are an online newspaper by and for The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix medical students. All published content and material are contributed by medical students, faculty, and community physicians. We work with UA COM-P to provide engaging, uncensored content that is both professional and respectful. The paper was founded by Haig Aintablian, Yael Kusne and Kate Townley in 2015.


The Differential is a platform for UA COM-P medical students that aims to educate, inform and enlighten our community through collaborative dialogue and communication.
