University of Utah School of Medicine
The University of Utah School of Medicine is adapting a data-aggregation tool developed and proven effective by its associated health system to create an education model that emphasizes cost reduction and connects education to patient-related outcomes. The goal is to increase the value of training medical students while reducing related costs.
