Diversity and Inclusion


The University of Utah Department of Neurology is an equal-opportunity program, proudly pluralistic, and firmly committed to providing training and employment opportunities to outstanding, qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience. We are committed to a holistic application review that we began in 2020. We have a team of faculty members who review all applications in their entirety from start to finish.

This year, we are building on our efforts to recruit a diverse resident group, and we are currently working on new initiatives that will ensure the success of all underrepresented groups.

The Department of Neurology recognizes the need for and value of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and therefore strives to maintain a welcoming community that will allow for all residents to realize their full potential. In doing so, we hope this will be a starting point for the transformative change needed in all levels of academia, as we will fully prepare our residents for careers in any area they choose, particularly academia.

We hope to enhance the faculty pipeline, in order to diversify the faculty population, by establishing and developing meaningful relationships with our residents, especially those who are from underrepresented groups. We appreciate your consideration of our program and look forward to honoring our deepest values and assisting you in fulfilling your highest aspirations.
