HCAT Logo Vector Robot Final

One of the joys of teaching at a research institution is the opportunity to train graduate students. As the Director of the Health Communication & Technology (HCAT) lab, I have the good fortune to work with many gifted students. Interested in joining the lab? Send me an email (jakob.jensen@utah.edu) or enroll in one of my graduate courses (e.g., HEDU 6540: Health Communication, which I teach every year).


The mission of HCAT Lab is to conduct cutting edge research in health communication and communication technology, and to cultivate new researchers in both areas. HCAT lab has a 100% placement rate. Every graduate student who has been in the lab has obtained a tenure track position and/or a prestigious post-doctoral position (learn more aboutĀ current and former studentsĀ here). The lab serves students who want to be faculty at research intensive institutions.
