The University of Utah's School of Medicine established the Department of Preventive Medicine in 1970 to address current and emerging health care needs by educating health care professionals, conducting basic and applied research, and implementing state-of-the-art clinical and community-based health services. Since then, the Department has grown into a booming entity that house the Divisions of Family Medicine, Physician Assistant Studies, Public Health, and Occupational and Environmental Health.

As an ever growing and developing department, our goal is to expand the possibilities of health by serving the communities we work with in a variety of capacities. Click here to read more about the department, our vision, and who we are.
