Verifications

Welcome to the University of Utah Internal Medicine On-Line Verification Request System!

A charge of $25 will be assessed for each comprehensive 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.

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

Before submitting your request, please confirm that the person trained at the University in one of the following programs: Internal Medicine Internship/Residency (Categorical or Preliminary), Medicine-Pediatrics Internship/Residency, Rheumatology Fellowship, Geriatrics Fellowship, or Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. Please proceed to our on-line payment portal and provide valid credit card information as payment. Once the request has been submitted please e-mail a completed Authorization for Release of Information form to improg@hsc.utah.edu  

When we have received the payment and trainee authorization, you will receive the completed verification of training form via e-mail.

We use the standardized “Verification of Graduate Medical Education Training” (VGMET) form released in 2016 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), American Hospital Association (AHA), National Association of Medical Staff Services (NAMSS), and Organization of Program Directors Associations (OPDA).

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, please send a check in the amount of $25 (per verification request) payable to University of Utah Dept of Medicine. Mail the payment, a completed training verification request, and Authorization for Release of Information form signed by the trainee to:

University of Utah                                                                                                         
Department of Medicine Office of Education
30 North 1900 East SOM 4C116
Salt Lake City, UT  84132

Verifications will not be provided unless payment is received with your request.  Note that your $25 payment covers standard verification only, as described for the on-line payment option.
