Meet New Provider An Dinh, MD

Meet New Provider An Dinh, MD

Dr. Dinh was born in Saigon, Vietnam and came to the US as a refugee settling in Salt Lake City, Utah.

After completing undergrad at the University of Chicago in Biology, he trained at New York Medical College in the underserved Primary Care track.

While working in Spanish Harlem, the Bronx and Queens he honed his medical skills and learned Spanish. The call of the mountains was deep and he completed his residency at the University of Utah where he was chief resident as the Stephen D. Ratcliffe Clinic, a community health center in the medically underserved neighborhood where he grew up.

As a National Health Service Corp Scholar Dr. Dinh worked with Tooele County. At the time it was designated as “Frontier” which means that many patients needed to drive more than 2 hours for routine and emergency medical care. He worked with local authorities and mental health resources to establish a comprehensive medication assisted treatment program for substance dependence that included affordable counseling to meet the urgent needs of a community ravaged by the opioid epidemic.

Dr. Dinh is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine and enjoys teaching the University of Utah students who will be our future Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.
