Living in Salt Lake City

Life in Utah

Salt Lake City is located in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains. One-of-a-kind Salt Lake City is a fast-growing city in the Mountain West that blends the amenities of a large metropolitan area with the personality of a small town, along with easy access to nature.

The Great Outdoors

Access to a variety of outdoor activities is truly out our back door. Seven world-class ski resorts are within 45 minutes from the University hospital. In addition, there are endless opportunities for trail running, road and mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing, golfing, and more. Utah boasts five National Parks: Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Zion. They are truly unique and spectacular and, they are easy to visit on a weekend trip. 

Living in SLC

Salt Lake City has thriving industries in healthcare, technology, outdoor recreation, finance, and more. The international airport is easily accessible and, as a Delta hub, offers daily nonstop flights both domestically and internationally. The population is growing and unemployment is low. The SLC metro area is ranked consistently on “Best Places to Live and Work” lists by Forbes and US News. Cost of living is lower than many similarly-sized metro areas; many medical residents, including those who have families, can afford to own their own home.
