About Us

“Health Care Across All Disciplines.” The Utah Health Scholars (UHS) Program is a Area Health Education Center which prepares students for admission to graduate and allied healthcare programs. Through a series of academic and non-academic experiences, students increase their likelihood of being accepted into medical, dental, physical therapist, occupational therapist, physician assistant, nursing, podiatry, optometry, veterinary, mental/behavioral health, healthcare administration and allied health schools.
