Education

The lynch pin in our academic endeavors is to do the finest job we can in the education of future urologists. Our surgeons are universally excellent educators with a strong commitment to residents in addition to being superb clinicians and researchers. We take this commitment very seriously at the University of Utah.

Welcome to the academic website of the Division of Urology at the University of Utah. Our division includes faculty members who are expert in the medical and surgical care of patients with a wide range of genitourinary (urological) disorders. Our mission, as an academic urology division, is to provide outstanding care to each of our patients, to educate future urologists and leaders in our field and to advance the understanding of urologic disorders through important research—both laboratory and clinical.

We care for patients at the University Hospital (Urology and Pelvic Care/Continence Center), Huntsman Cancer Hospital, Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine (Andrology), VA Medical Center and Primary Children's Medical Center. By offering a broad range of subspecialists within urology, we serve as a unique resource for patients from all over the Rocky Mountain West.
