Over 60 obstetrics & gynecology faculty members participate in fellowship training at three teaching hospitals. About 50% of rotations occur at University Hospital and the half of rotations are at LDS Hospital and Intermountain Medical Center.
The institutions’ strengths and collegial environment result in quality fellowship education with an excellent integration of all specialties.
University Hospital is a 535-bed tertiary and primary care center situated at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City. It averages 26,000 inpatient admits per year. The hospital is a major referral center for complex and unusual medical cases from throughout the Intermountain West.
It also maintains a large primary care base supplied from ten satellite clinics of the University of Utah Health Network. All patients have private rooms with fantastic views of the Salt Lake mountains and valleys.
University Hospital has substantial support personnel and services which greatly minimize non-physician tasks for fellows (e.g., phlebotomy, intravenous access, discharge planning, etc.).
University Hospital is connected to Huntsman Cancer Hospital and Huntsman Cancer Institute by a covered walkway.
Intermountain Medical Center

The new campus serves as home base for Intermountain Life Flight and other major programs such as organ transplantation, artificial heart research, trauma care, and many other programs previously housed at LDS Hospital.

The campus also has medical education and research facilities and clinics, as well as physician office space. Intermountain Medical Center is a teaching hospital - working in conjunction with the University of Utah School of Medicine and area nursing colleges.
