Mission Statement and Aims


Mission Statement

Our mission is:

  • To train physicians to be vital members of the health care team and future leaders in medical imaging.
  • To provide compassionate care without compromise for the people of Utah and the intermountain west region
  • To promote personal responsibility and well-being
  • To advance knowledge through research


Program Aims

  • Excellence in Education: Our trainees learn radiology and imaging science from world-renowned radiologist educators, both at the point of care and through a well established didactic and case-based education curriculum.
  • Excellence in Clinical Care: As a specialized referral center that cares for patients and receives imaging from a 5 state geographic area, our trainees work with state-of-the-art technology at our facilities and understand the variability of technology they will encounter in clinical practice. Our trainees learn to be efficient, thorough and accurate in their interpretation of imaging
  • Excellence in Research and Innovation: Our trainees have access to customized training to create and promote value transformation in healthcare, through research, and leadership. We also provide access to high quality research training and support through collaboration with the Utah Center for Advanced Imaging Research
  • Diversity is a core value of our program. We strive to create an environment of inclusion, support, and mutual respect for all. Diverse residents and faculty strengthen our program and enhance the education environment. Our goal is to interview and select a diverse group of residents to train every year that will strengthen our field and serve the needs of all patients.
