Mission Statement

The University of Utah Health and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology serves the people of Utah and the Intermountain West by improving individual and community health and quality of life. We strive for excellence in patient care, education, research, and service to our community. We believe that diversity, in all forms, strengthens our work and significantly increases the reach and vibrancy of these missions.

The University of Utah OB/GYN residency program endeavors to train well-rounded obstetric and gynecologic generalists who can provide a full scope of women’s health care with compassion and skill, and to provide an excellent base from which to pursue subspecialty training if desired. A vital part of fulfilling this goal is providing an inclusive work environment where residents can gain medical knowledge and skills to excel in patient care and have opportunities to participate in research and quality improvement endeavors while fostering an environment of personal and professional well-being.
