Transforming Health

Message From Michael L. Good, MD

Michael L. Good, MD

University of Utah Health is changing the training, practice, and delivery of health care in profound and meaningful ways.

Here in Utah, we share a deep belief in our core missions of patient care, research, education, and service to our communities. With a university campus co-located alongside the health system, we are able to positively impact our communities and society at large. We joined the prestigious Association of American Universities in 2019 as a recognition of the world-class faculty, increasing research funding, and exceptional student outcomes at the University of Utah.

U of U Health is one of the strongest and most collegial academic health science centers in the nation. As one of only a few public academic medical centers in which the tripartite missions of clinical care, research, and education all report to a single office, U of U Health is nimbler than many of our peers. This gives us a tremendous opportunity to serve our communities and region by working across our health system to advance equity, diversity and inclusion, innovate care that is accountable for outcomes, produce groundbreaking research, and develop novel educational models.

U of U Health is full of remarkable teams and individuals who continuously ensure patients conquer health challenges and learners master their educational programs—including the research and discoveries that lead to improvements in both. We are deeply committed to the health and wellness to our faculty, students, and staff, as well as to our community.

I believe that when each of us works to help others achieve success, a unique and powerful energy is unleashed that drives us forward in amazing ways. It is my privilege to work for the impressive faculty and staff at U of U Health—to be a part of an energized community on an impressive trajectory of excellence to improve health and quality of life in the state, region, nation, and world.
