Welcome to the University of Utah MD-PhD Program! As Program Directors, we are delighted to collaborate with our incredible group of trainees to realize their physician-scientist aspirations. As we approach our program’s 30th anniversary, we are inspired by the great success and impact of our alumni, including leadership roles in academic medicine, research, industry, and policy. Our Program is continuously improving in close collaboration with our outstanding faculty, committed staff, and highly engaged students. Our Program’s rapid growth reflects the rising stature of Utah’s vibrant biomedical research enterprise (nearly doubling in the past 8 years). It is also our privilege to recruit the next generation of diverse physician-scientist leaders through our outreach and admissions efforts. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or we can help you navigate the complex array of physician-scientist training options. We look forward to seeing you soon in Salt Lake City!
