The Team Behind the Team
As a former host city and home to hundreds of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls, we’ve always felt a connection to the Olympic Games.
U of U Health was selected for this role because of its:
- longstanding history of high-quality medical care;
- leadership in sports and research initiatives; and
- location, which allows us to support Team USA athletes where they train.
University of Utah Health became an official member of the United States Olympics Committee (USOC) family in May 2016, when it joined the USOC’s National Medical Network. As its newest member, U of U Health is entrusted to provide medical care to America’s top 1,000 athletes.
What We Provide
Orthopedic medicine, dentistry, psychiatry, ophthalmology, and neurosurgery services to talented and driven individuals.
The Right Fit
As a member of the network, U of U Health has the opportunity to collaborate on meaningful research, including leading a Zika study prior to the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and efforts to prevent injury in female athletes. Chris Gee, MD, MPH, will be accompanying Team USA this February.
