Thrombosis

Referring Physicians

The Thrombosis Service’s goal is to assist University of Utah Health Care (UUHC) providers with consultation and referral services for prevention and treatment of thrombosis. Thrombosis Service pharmacists have a collaborative practice agreement that outlines the policies and responsibilities with respect to anticoagulation management on behalf of referring providers.
