What is the Program in Personalized Health?
University of Utah Health’s Program in Personalized Health leads research, clinical, and educational initiatives that support the tailoring of medical treatment to each patient’s individual characteristics and preferences.
Our goals include:
- Promote the highest quality individualized health care at the lowest appropriate cost.
- Serve as University of Utah Health’s coordinating and information center for personalized health care-related initiatives as well as a point of contact for external parties.
- Facilitate and support the development of clinical and research tools and practices that benefit Utah citizens and that can be used outside the state.
- Educate clinicians and researchers in personalized health care-related practices.
- Foster collaborative partnerships with Intermountain Healthcare and other personalized health care-related organizations in Utah and nationwide.
Part of the Program in Personalized Health's mission is to educate clinicians, researchers, and students in personalized health.
To facilitate this effort, we sponsor several important educational initiatives including a graduate-level survey course of personalized health care topics and a graduate certificate in personalized health.
The Utah Personalized Health Care Consortium (UPHC) facilitates collaboration among individuals, community leaders and organizations, healthcare systems, and academic institutions to drive a community-valued approach to personalized health care, including balanced efforts in education, research, health care delivery, and public health.
