The site’s 2018-2019 Residency Navigator places Moran at No. 10 nationwide and No. 3 in the West. Doximity surveys physician opinions annually to determine its reputation-based rankings, used by medical school graduates evaluating high-quality training programs.
“I couldn’t be more pleased that my colleagues recognize the exceptional nature of our residency program,” said Moran’s Vice Chair of Education Jeff Pettey, MD. “Our philosophy is to provide time and resources for residents to pursue their individual professional development. Because we listen and provide support, our residents accomplish amazing things.”
Moran’s highly competitive program selects four residency applicants from a pool of more than 400 each year. While nationally ophthalmology residents must perform 86 cataract surgeries—the average is 140—Moran residents each perform nearly 300 cataract surgeries and a range of 300 subspecialty surgeries, all supervised by board-certified attending faculty.

Under the college’s newly established Early Decision Program (EDP), students can apply to attend law school for the fall of 2019 by Oct. 19 and be assured of decision on whether they will be admitted as an Early Decision Program student by early November.
Applying to the Early Decision Program is a binding applications process and students who apply to the S.J. Quinney College of Law are committed to attending the law school once accepted. Students should carefully consider all law school options before making the decision to apply through the Early Decision Program.
“This decision—establishing the S.J. Quinney College of Law as one’s first-choice law school—should be the result of fully researching law school options. If after investigating law schools and determining that S.J. Quinney College of Law is your first-choice law school, you may then wish to apply through the EDP,” said Reyes Aguilar, the law school’s associate dean for admission and financial aid.

Whittaker-Brooks is honored for her work in developing new materials to store energy as a way to make energy production and storage more efficient and more sustainable. She draws inspiration from the hydroelectric dams in Panama, where she grew up, which are reliant on water sources that are susceptible to climate change impacts. “In Panama, basically our rivers are drying up,” she is quoted as saying. “And that made me think about how I can use other types of alternative energies.”

U contributions to computer graphics honored
In that and other sessions of the 2018 conference of SIGGRAPH (the Special Interest Group on Computer GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques of the Association for Computing Machinery), Sutherland’s students and colleagues unfolded his impact on the students who came through the computer science department at the U during his tenure as a professor, from 1968 to 1974. Those students then passed those impacts on to the world as founders of companies including Pixar, Adobe and Netscape.

Wolf passed away in January 2016 after having spent half his adult life in Japan. He was deeply committed to strengthening ties between the U.S. and Japan through his professional work and volunteerism. He was also passionate about educating young adults on all things Japanese. As a member of the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission, he helped award funds to many U.S.-Japan related educational organizations.
Having been accepted into the School of International Liberal Studies at Waseda University in Tokyo, Checketts will be using the scholarship to fund his year-long exchange to the university. The exchange will allow him to complete his degree in International Studies and lay the groundwork to finish his honors thesis (which he plans to do on comparative education between Japan and the United States).
In addition, Checketts hopes to become fluent in Japanese so he can fulfill his lifelong dream of speaking to his grandparents, whom he has never had more than a broken conversation with.
“Growing up, I have always been curious about the differences between Japan and the U.S. My mother, having been born and raised in Japan, would often comment about these differences (especially regarding the educational system) and leave my siblings and I wondering what kind of fascinating, unique place Japan must be. However, due to a variety of personal and family issues, we never got the opportunity to learn Japanese. Now that I am completing my degree in international studies at the University of Utah, I have begun to realize just how deeply being Japanese-American has changed the way I view the world. It has led me to subconsciously compare Japan and American society throughout my life and formed the basis of my curiosity for Japanese society and culture.”
Checketts will be leaving for Japan on Sept. 8, 2018 and will return Aug. 3, 2019.

Inclusive Access Saves Students 70-80 PERCENT on Textbooks, First-Day Access
Inclusive Access puts your textbooks online for ease of access, making them available anytime, anywhere and most importantly, on the first day of class.
