Dr. Hultgren was born in Minnesota and raised primarily in Missouri. He holds undergraduate degrees in Philosophy & Religion and Business (emphasis on Organizational Behavior) at Truman State University and a medical degree from the University of Missouri School of Medicine. Prior to medicine, he worked and consulted for several years in the social development sector in the Middle East, North Africa, Central America, and South America. Following this, he was a live-in manager for a homeless shelter for mentally ill men for several years. His medical interests include Narrative Medicine, nutrition, low-resource medicine, disaster and infectious medicine, and care for vulnerable populations–especially migrants, homeless, addicted, LGBTQ, incarcerated, and Native Americans. He enjoys reading widely, writing fiction and non-fiction, cooking, outdoor sports, practicing other languages, playing music, and singing to and with his dogs. He chose the University of Utah because of its amazing faculty and the opportunity to develop a skillset consistent with his goals, all beneath the welcoming gaze of the mountains.
