Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)
Support our Mission - Funding Opportunities
A gift to the Division of Otolaryngology provides essential support for patient care, research, and education. There are many ways for you to support the Division. A gift to Otolaryngology may be unrestricted in use or you may allocate your gift to a particular program, research fund or purpose. Below are just a few of the many ways you can support the important research, patient care, and education endeavors of the Division of Otolaryngology.
Annual Lectureship Funds
The Division of Otolaryngology provides annual continuing education for physicians, nurses, residents, and other ENT providers throughout the region and across the country. Each year, three distinguished speakers are invited to share their expertise at our annual Utah Otolaryngology Update. These lectures are supported by endowments named in honor of former Division Faculty. The David A. Dolowitz endowment honors the Division’s “Founding Father” and first Chief. The James L. Parkin endowment honors Dr. Parkin’s tremendous achievements and provides an annual speaker on the topic of otologic surgery. The Steven D. Gray Memorial Lecture honors the memory and service of our beloved colleague. Contributing to these endowments ensures continued excellence in education and improved otolaryngic care within the Intermountain region.
Otolaryngology Equipment Fund
Generous support for this fund keeps the Division of Otolaryngology on the cutting edge of technology. Thoughtful gifts of all sizes make possible the equipment and research our doctors and scientists need to make important discoveries that will contribute to a healthier future for those who suffer from ear, nose and throat conditions. In order to keep our equipment at a standard of excellence, we need philanthropic support.
Leland P. Johnson, M.D. Endowment Fund
Superior excellence is often achieved through the establishment of endowments; established endowments create powerful incentives for recruiting and retaining outstanding physicians and scientists. This particular Endowment Fund has been named to honor Dr. Leland P. Johnson, for his commitment to resident education, medical expertise, and service. A gift to this endowment demonstrates your commitment to Otolaryngology education well into the future. Through the establishment of endowments we can continue to attract the most qualified and dedicated minds in Otolaryngic care and research.
Resident Training Fund
Generous gifts to the Resident Training Fund do much to ensure our ability to provide excellent medical education, research, and health care, which benefit not only the University's students and faculty, but also those who rely on the Division of Otolaryngology for health services. Contributions to this fund make possible significant improvement in resident education through which camaraderie is achieved. Not only is the overall experience of the residents enhanced, but the prestige and reputation of the program, which is a direct reflection on the alumni, is also improved. Through this fund you can contribute to the education of the Otolaryngology surgeons of the future.
