Ted H. Burningham, MD
Emergency medicine is the rousing cousin of family medicine. And for Dr. Ted Burningham, both run in the family.
Dr. Burningham brings to his position as a family medicine physician at Tanner Clinic Layton extensive training and experience in emergency medicine.
Indeed, Dr. Burningham has worked in emergency rooms across the state from Beaver to Brigham City. In addition to his family practice in Layton, he currently fills in regularly on weekends at a hospital emergency unit in northern Minnesota, a remote location that has difficulty attracting medical professionals.
His family practice focuses on all aspects of pediatric and adult well care, with emphasis on adolescent medical and mental-health care and management of chronic diseases.
Dr. Burningham received his B.S. in biology from the University of Utah. He earned his M.D. from George Washington University, located seven blocks from the White House and used by many U.S. presidents for routine and emergency needs. While there, he earned the Upjohn Achievement Award for Outstanding Scholastic Achievement, awarded to those in the class’s top 15 percent.
The physician returned to Utah to complete his residency in family medicine at McKay-Dee Hospital Center.
Dr. Burningham’s first position as an attending physician was in the emergency room at Beaver Valley Hospital, Beaver, Utah. Prior to joining Tanner Clinic in 2003, the physician practiced for six years at the Valley Regional Medical Center in Tooele, Utah (now defunct). That period included two years as an emergency-room doctor and four years as an attending physician and surgeon.
Dr. Burningham is married and the father of six children. He is a cyclist — mostly road biking — and avid backyard stargazer. In his spare time, he satisfies his astronomical curiosity with an 8-inch telescope through which he sees “amazing things.” He’s also a University of Utah sports fan.
