The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at the University of Utah is a rapidly growing academic program. Our department enjoys a collaborative and integrated work environment through close association with prominent orthopaedic, neurosurgery, and radiology departments. We also have a strong tradition of clinical excellence and close alignment with the university’s mission. Accordingly, physicians have the opportunity to develop a rewarding professional career while balancing such with an active, outdoor lifestyle that Salt Lake City offers. Located at the foot of the spectacular Wasatch Mountains and being the state capital, Salt Lake City offers a rich array of culture, sports, and educational opportunities.
Working in tandem with University of Utah Health, which has been recognized as one of "America's Best Hospitals" for the 13th year and is the state’s largest provider of ambulatory care, opportunities for education through practical application in physical med and rehab are varied. Beyond its world-renowned reputation, University Hospital and the University of Utah Medical School are the only medical center and academic institution for the Mountain West and are dedicated to a mission of quality clinical care, excellence in academics, and respected research.
