    Why Utah?

    I believe Utah is one of few programs that provides robust, comprehensive clinical and academic training in all aspects of neurosurgery, ranging from open vascular to nerve transfer. In addition, in my opinion, Salt Lake City is one of the best places to live, with some of the best outdoor activities in the country. Most importantly, the University of Utah possesses a family-like culture where residents, faculty, and staff have each others’ best interested in mind
