Director of Advancement, Department of Internal Medicine

University of Utah Health - Salt Lake City, UT
The University of Utah and the University of Utah Health seek a Director of Advancement, Department of Internal Medicine to lead donor cultivation and solicitations in support of clinical, education, and research priorities, with a particular focus on the Driving Out Diabetes Initiative.

The Director of Advancement will direct efforts to solicit and secure gifts for the University of Utah Department of Internal Medicine while developing and coordinating major gift and annual giving programs that focus on endocrinology, geriatrics, nephrology, hypertension, general internal medicine, and other department priorities.

The University of Utah is Utah’s oldest institution of higher education, and The Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine at the University of Utah is Utah’s first medical school. With a motto of Imagine, then Do, the university encourages all learners to be active participants in the educational process and to believe that all things are possible.

“It has been my great honor to support the work in the Department of Internal Medicine for ten years. I have had the remarkable opportunity of working with faculty, staff, former faculty, alumni, and grateful patients to support the incredible work of the Department.

Six years ago, the University of Utah, through a generous donation, established the Driving Out Diabetes Initiative. This bold initiative incorporates a three-pronged approach to attack diabetes through prevention and outreach, clinical care, and research and training.

The Director of Advancement is at the intersection of cutting-edge science and clinical care. As we look forward to the future, there are many exciting growth projects that will require philanthropic support. This role works with leadership in vision setting and strategy while cultivating philanthropic relationships.

Thank you in advance for your interest in this unique role.”
