Located in the heart of Salt Lake City, UT there are abundant recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities. The University of Utah is the largest tertiary/ quaternary academic medical center in the Intermountain West. It has ranked in the Top 10 Academic Medical Centers for Quality of care for the last 11 years. The University of Utah serves patients from a multi-state region with a Level 1 trauma center and 450 acute care beds.
In the spring of 2020, we transitioned to the 75-bed Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital, which is one of the most advanced rehabilitation facilities in the nation and serves as a catalyst for the further development of the University’s rehabilitation programs. We are looking for energetic academically-oriented neuropsychologists who will support this recent transition and help us expand our footprint locally, regionally, and nationally.
