Applying to the M.Ed. in Health Professions
What Will I Need?
Each applicant must submit:
- Application to the University of Utah Graduate School
- Statement of purpose
- 2 Letters of Recommendation
- Curriculum Vitae
How do I apply?
Step 1: Contact us
Send an email to MED_healthprofessions@hsc.utah.edu to let us know who you are and that you will be applying.
Step 2: Arrange for transcripts
Have your transcripts sent to the University admissions office. Do this early because delay in receiving transcripts will hold up the University admissions process. Have official transcripts mailed to:
University of Utah, Admissions Office
201 South 1460 East, Room 250S
Salt Lake City, UT 84112-9057
Step 3: Prepare your statement of purpose.
Your statement of purpose should include your reasons for applying to this program, your background in education (if any), and your career goals. A typical statement of purpose is about 1 page in length.
Step 4: Identify two individuals to provide a letter of recommendation
This letter can be written by a University of Utah faculty or other faculty from other institution that has worked with you (the applicant) in the past or present. The letters of recommendation must be submitted through the Apply Yourself application. You will provide the names and contact information, and the request will be generated from that program. Please request that your recommender speak specifically to your potential in this specific program.
If your department or program are supporting your participation (financially or dedicated time), please have your Division or Department Chair/Chief or Program Director submit one of the letters indicating their support.
Step 5: Complete the online application
Fill out the University of Utah 'Apply Yourself' online application. On the program information page under "Program of Interest", select Health Professions MED as your intended graduate program and degree.
With the application you will upload (as a .doc or .pdf):
- Unofficial transcripts
- Your CV
- Your statement of purpose, and
- Names of individuals who will provide letters of reference
You are not required to complete your online application in one sitting. The application allows you to save your application and return later to continue.
