“I did my fellowship at the University of Utah in 2021-2022. It was a wonderful experience that helped me develop and polish my skill sets. Coming out of fellowship, I felt extremely prepared and hit the ground running.  I really enjoyed my mentors, and I truly felt like I struck gold. I am extremely grateful to them and the fellowship program. It has paid countless dividends to my development and career.  I would definitely do the fellowship again and strongly recommend it!"

From a clinic and patient management perspective, I felt challenged all year long during fellowship. Partway through fellowship year I was ready to practice independently because of the amount of education and encouragement to be independent. Right after completing my fellowship and practicing independently, I was comfortable and confident clinically, procedurally, and administratively. I could focus on training staff and administrative personnel for an interventional practice, which was new to them. At the U I learned novel and cutting edge procedures that I was able to introduce to a new patient market in Montana. The knowledge of the faculty at the University of Utah is unparalleled, and I highly recommend training at the U!

"The ISMM Fellowship at the University of Utah is a tremendous program and your fellowship mentors are national leaders and scholars in the field. There is a deliberate, purposeful learning objective behind every procedure, every clinical encounter, every question, and every lecture that is asked of you. You have access to cutting edge technology, innovative clinical trials, and a powerful alumni network. You will graduate as a truly more knowledgeable and capable physician. And, to top it all off, Utah is a stunning outdoor mecca-hiking, biking, climbing, skiing, running, and rock climbing are everywhere you turn (and you can even find occasional ski-joring, rodeos, rockhounding, and fossil digging)!"

“The training that I received during my fellowship year at the University of Utah was unmatched. Learning and working alongside national and international leaders in the field, this year allows for such growth as a physician and as a person. This, in conjunction with living in beautiful Salt Lake City, makes this a unique and unrivaled experience.”
