Message from our Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Interventional Spine Fellowship at the University of Utah. This is a North American Spine Society (NASS) recognized fellowship program with a faculty of 5 spine/pain/sports medicine sub-specialized PM&R physicians, 6 spine surgeons, 2 radiologists, and a spine-specialized physical therapist. The extensive multi-disciplinary spine care experience, leadership training, and very strong mentorship distinguishes this program from many others. 

The goal of this fellowship program is to train the next generation of academic and clinical leaders in the field of Spine Medicine who wish to bring excellence to the field of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. The program is designed to provide focused knowledge and skills in the management of persons with spine and musculoskeletal disorders. This is a 12 month program that offers clinical and interventional care, teaching, research experiences, and leadership development. The academic environment emphasizes an approach to clinical problem solving, encouraging self-directed study, the development of analytic skills, and sound procedural judgment.

Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.
