About

What is Partners in Medicine?

Partners in Medicine (PIM) is a group dedicated to supporting the significant others of University of Utah physician interns, residents and fellows. We provide a support group to families who are in this transitional stage in life. We are a diverse group and although we come from various backgrounds and points of view, we share a common bond – surviving residency and fellowship.

Our organization provides a tremendous network of people and activities to help you make new friends and have fun during residency and fellowship. For many of our members, PIM has become their family away from home.
