    Why Utah?

    Michael completed an away rotation in Utah as a fourth-year medical student, and was stunned by both the complexity of neurosurgical cases as well as the case volume available. The operative experience paired with the emphasis on academics and resources for research productivity ultimately led Michael to choose the University of Utah.
