»5 of 5 «
Michael Brandy, Deseret News archives
Utah has the only medical school in the state. Not only is it the only one offered in Utah, and one of the graduate programs populated by many BYU alums — 14 percent, to be exact — but it was also ranked No. 1 in healthcare by the University Healthsystem Consortium. "The Consortium's quality ranking is one of the most rigorous and thorough rankings in the country," said Lorris Betz, U. Health Care CEO and senior vice president for the University's Health Sciences, in a press release. Utah also boasts the No. 5 family medicine program, No. 8 nursing school and No. 5 pharmacy program. Also, Utah professor Dr. Mario R. Capecchi won a Nobel Prize in 2007 for his work on a gene targeting technique to help discover diseases in animals and humans.
