Why Utah? I grew to appreciate Utah first by living in North Ogden, UT during my adolescence. I moved away for a time for undergraduate and medical school both in the state of Michigan. Though, with interviewing for residency programs for Family Medicine I felt like I fell in love with Utah and Salt Lake City all over again and was lucky enough to be accepted and come back to Utah. The ability to work with our wonderful faculty and resources of the university coupled with our beautiful location and access to outdoor adventures makes for a wonderful environment to practice medicine!

Megan Schwartz, MD

Residency: St. Mark's Family Medicine Residency
Medical Areas of Interest: Addiction in Rural Medicine, Infectious Disease, Women's Health and Addiction
Interests and Hobbies: Hanging out with my husband and bulldog, Jojo. Horseback riding, hiking, swimming, snowboarding, and anything to do with food, cooking, or gardening
Why Utah? After spending most of my life in North Dakota, I felt it was important to work with more diverse populations for my residency training and be in a supportive program that would train me to be a great primary care provider. My residency program here in Utah was a great match for what I was looking for. Throughout my training, I developed a particular interest in addiction medicine. I recognized the resources and opportunity to learn from experienced mentors/colleagues in this fellowship would be second to none, so I decided to stay and learn. We also have the opportunity to participate in rural outreach which is important to me. Additionally, in 7th grade while I was working on a class project about Utah, I wrote to one of the senators here and I received a hand written note back. I was sold then that this is would be a great place to live and it has been!
