Education Vision & Mission
Message From Our Vice Chair
We in the Department of Surgery at the University of Utah are committed to excellence within the education mission and believe that surgical education must be approached with intention.
The current environment of medical education, overlaid with the complexities of modern healthcare, requires a thoughtful and innovative approach to optimize student and resident learning and achievement.
We support all of our teaching faculty and career educators through our Section of Education and are committed to advancing the field of surgical education with this community of educators.
