Verifications

Welcome to the University of Utah Graduate Medical Education Online Verification System!

A charge of $15 will be assessed for each standard letter of verification, payable via credit card using our on-line payment portal, or by check, if submitting the request by US mail.

This charge is in place to offset the cost of fees we commonly incur while credentialing our own incoming interns, residents and fellows. We apologize for the inconvenience

If you need specific documents completed beyond a standardized letter, please contact the program directly for this information.

Instructions for requesting training verification (On-Line Payment):

Before submitting your request, please confirm that the person for whom you are seeking a training verification did training in a program our GME office would have record of. You can do this by referencing our program list. If we have the program, please proceed by completing a training verification request and e-mail the completed request to gme@hsc.utah.edu.  Each request must also be accompanied by a signed "Authorization for Release of Information" form.

After submitting your request, please proceed to our on-line payment portal and provide valid credit card information as payment.

When we have received your request and payment, you will be e-mailed a standard verification of training (see example). Note that your $15 payment covers standard verification only.

Standard verification information includes:

  • Name of trainee
  • Training Program(s) / Specialty
  • Dates of training
  • Confirmation of successful completion of program(s) or
  • Explanation and further information if program not successfully completed
  • Current Contact information for Program / Specialty

If your request is for additional (non-standard) information, you will still be provided with a standard verification.  In these cases, we will forward your custom form(s) to the appropriate department for completion.  The standard verification will include contact information for you to follow-up, if necessary.  There will be no additional charge for these ‘non-standard' requests, but additional time may be required for completion and follow-up will be your responsibility.

Additional / Non-standard information may include:

  • Specific privileges and/or procedure training
  • Performance evaluations
  • Specific need for Program Director signature

If we are unable to provide a standard verification (i.e., we have no record of the individual in question) you will be notified by e-mail and your payment card will be credited with a refund.

Instructions for requesting training verification by US Mail (Payment by Check):

If you do not have the capability to submit your request via e-mail or you require an original, written response, please send a check in the amount of $15 (per verification request) payable to Graduate Medical Education and send this, along with your written request and a signed Authorization for Release of Information to:

University of Utah Hospital
Graduate Medical Education Office, Room 1C412
30 North 1900 East
Salt Lake City, UT  84132

Verifications will not be provided unless payment is received with your request.  Note that your $15 payment covers standard verification only, as described for the On-Line payment option.
