DBMI Has Reached a New Milestone of 500+ Graduates

Nov 08, 2021

We are proud to announce that our department has reached a new milestone in educating over 500 Phd and MS students (520 grads to be exact)! We currently have 3 MD/PhD students, 18 PhD students, and 69 MS students.

Granting our first informatics PhD in the United States in 1965, we have graduated more PhDs than any other program in the world. Our department has also granted more MD/PhDs than any other department in the University of Utah’s School of Medicine.

Kudos go to our education team, Dr. Damian Borbolla, Dr. Karen Eilbeck, Barb Saffel, Robert Barber and Shiva Sanavi who work hard to elevate our students’ educational experience! Congratulations!
