Why Utah?

The University of Utah stood out as a perfect fit for me for several reasons. First, I was looking for excellent research mentoring in a program with a dedicated research track position with protected research time, something very few programs other than Utah maintain. Second, I was looking for a program that had sufficient size and faculty that had broad interests to provide a strong and diverse clinical training experience. Third, I was looking for a place with a reasonable cost of living, good schools, and a supportive environment to raise my three children. Utah has met and exceeded all of my expectations!
