The University of Utah's Regional Burn Center has remained a Center of Excellence since 1976 and has been continuously verified by the American Burn Association since verification was first offered 27 years ago. We remain committed to working with all communities to deliver high-quality comprehensive care to burn patients and are proud to work collaboratively in our multidisciplinary team to strive to obtain the best possible patient outcomes.
As the only academic specialty Burn Center in the Intermountain West, our mission is three-pronged:
- To provide exceptional patient care from the day a patient arrives throughout their journey of recovery with our team,
- To engage in high-impact innovative research that results in improved delivery of care and outcomes, and
- To educate regional partners and build long-term community support for the Burn Center.
Our burn surgery fellowship is a one-year program that offers exposure to, and involvement in, adult and pediatric care, inpatient and outpatient care, and reconstruction. Fellows will be involved in all phases of a burn patient's treatment while with us. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to participate in both burn education and teleburn services with our regional partners throughout the Intermountain West.
