College of Eastern Utah’s science faculty member, Barry Beutler, introduces himself as “a new professor in the department of biology,” teaching courses in anatomy, physiology and biology.  

 Beutler will finish this academic year in May and in July will “be moving to Detroit, Mich., to spend three years in an anesthesia residency at Henry Ford Hospital.”

 “I received my bachelor’s degree from Utah State Universityy, after which I attended Penn State University and earned my doctorate of medicine (MD),”   explains Beutler. “I also did a year internship at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center (yes, Hershey as in the chocolate) in internal medicine.”  

Recalling he and his family’s experience there, Beutler states, “We enjoyed living in Hershey where the chocolate factory still operates and the streets smell of chocolate.”

Beutler explains “I’m originally from Centerville, Utah. My wife is from Star Valley, Wyo.  We have three children who are as cute as can be.”  Together they enjoy “getting out in the outdoors, skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and camping.”  

Beutler’s ties to Price date back to his great-great grandparents.   Beutler explains this “little known fact” by stating “my great-great grandparents are buried in the Price City Cemetery just a block from campus. They used to live here and their old home is actually still standing.”

Explaining his temporary stay at CEU, Beutler states, “I decided to teach for a year before continuing my medical training in anesthesiology.  I love teaching. The most exciting part is to watch principles I teach ‘click’ as students grasp them. The subjects I teach are a lot of fun as well because everyone wants to know more about their health and how their body’s work. We discuss common things, for example what cancer is, why it is bad, how it works and what causes it. These common things interest students as we apply our knowledge to real life situations, and learning becomes fun.”  

Summing up his experience at CEU Beutler expresses, “It’s been a wonderful opportunity to meet the wonderful students of CEU and interact with the faculty.”
