As an integrated health system, Intermountain Healthcare has a vision to be a model health system by providing evidence based clinical care and superior service at an affordable cost. Intermountain Healthcare has a strong performance improvement history in key clinical programs that cross the spectrum of care (primary care through tertiary care) with a mission of “helping people live the healthiest lives possible.”

Stanford University School of Medicine is a world-wide leader in science and research. As a premier research medical school, Stanford School of Medicine is home to faculty who are continuously exploring and developing new technologies that test the limits of science. The mission to “improve health through leadership, diversity and a collaborative approach to discovery” continues to result in breakthrough findings that benefit patients worldwide.

Investigators at both Intermountain Healthcare and Stanford University have a unique opportunity to improve the underlying science of medicine for the improvement of patient care, on a large scale and within a healthcare delivery system, through ongoing performance improvement, investigation, innovation, and/or education, all focused on healthcare transformation. Through the Intermountain-Stanford Travel Grant Program, investigators from both institutions are encouraged to explore potential areas of clinical research and innovation, which may lead to deeper collaboration and the possibility for further funding through the Intermountain-Stanford Grant Program.
