The University of Utah Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine serves all people and communities of Utah and the Intermountain West by intentionally supporting and improving individual and community health outcomes and quality of life. This is achieved through excellence in equitable patient care, education, and research by:

  • Purposefully educating scientists and health care professionals to ensure compassionate, equitable, patient-centered care to all, prioritizing communities of greatest need.
  • Serving rural and underserved communities by prioritizing and acting to address social determinants of health to eliminate structures and practices that lead to health disparities among all people.
  • Engaging in scholarly research to advance knowledge, innovation, well-being, and health equity for all people.
  • Fostering a culture of belonging, anti-racism, and anti-discrimination through strategic recruitment, retention, and recognition of efforts among students, trainees, staff, faculty, and community partners.


This School of Medicine Alumni Association Fund is used to support medical student programming, student scholarships, and alumni outreach. It provided start-up funding for the Student Emergency Fund and the Wellness Program. It also funds special requests from the Dean of the School of Medicine, finances speakers for CME and other training, and helps cover housing costs for the Rural Utah Underserved Training Experience for students doing rotations in rural communities around the state.
