The Utah Medical Education Council was created in 1997 by H.B.141 out of a need to secure and stabilize the state’s supply of healthcare clinicians. This legislation authorized the UMEC to conduct ongoing healthcare workforce analyses and to assess Utah’s training capacity and graduate medical education financing policies.
The UMEC publishes comprehensive reports, profiles and articles on Utah's health care workforce.
We provide the most comprehensive listing of opportunities for Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners in Utah. Visit our Job Board to check out over 330 available positions.
UMEC has accepted the designation as a Nursing Workforce Information Center. The UMEC gathers data on the supply, the demand and on the education of nurses in the state of Utah.
The needs of rural Utah are addressed through workforce studies; job board & job fairs; and through a rural residency training program. To encourage residents to set up practice in rural areas, the UMEC has created rural residency training opportunities in a number of communities off the Wasatch Front.
