Why you should attend?

While we have some students who have served in the military prior to enrollment, we are known for having a large number of students on the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). These students are commissioned at the start of their program, participate in a special military medicine track while in school and have a special commissioning exercise as part of our commencement program. We hold an annual military appreciation ceremony to honor our faculty, staff and students who are either currently serving or who have previously served in the military. Our Utah students and faculty also work closely with the Southern Utah Veterans Home to provide long-term care for the veterans who reside there.

Why we are a great choice for military spouses?

Our school has instituted policies to address the concerns and needs of military spouses and their families. We've constructed our admissions, retention, career counseling, and mentoring programs to help alleviate the difficulties faced by military spouses. Our flexible learning options and degree continuation programs are designed to accommodate deployments and relocation.
