Programs to Enhance Diversity in Biomedical Science

At University of Utah Health, we believe that diversity in thought and lived experience is critical for asking the right questions and arriving at novel solutions. We support a number of programs that are centered on inclusion and that strive to create equitable opportunities for all.

Our programs for undergraduates are aimed at enhancing diversity in biomedical science. Students pair with world-class research mentors to gain in-depth knowledge in health sciences fields and insights into higher education and career opportunities. For graduate and postdoctoral trainees, we provide guidance and support for application to competitive individual fellowships that foster development of a more inclusive academic scientific environment. Additional opportunities abound within our larger University of Utah and University of Utah Health communities, which are deeply committed to establishing a culture of belonging throughout campus and beyond.
