Alamosa Rural Training Track – Family Medicine Residency Program

The mission of the Alamosa Rural Training Track is to provide medical education and training for Family Medicine Residents in an accredited residency program while they live and work in a rural community.  Training begins with the internship year at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo, a mid-sized city, and the next two years will be spent in rural Alamosa.  The curriculum is longitudinal and deliberately structured for a 24-month continuity practice.  The residency program is integrated with Valley-Wide Health Systems, a Community Health Center that provides health care in a respectful and inclusive manner for all with special consideration for the medically underserved populations and with San Luis Valley Health hospital for specialty rotations.

Alamosa Rural Training Track Faculty Providers

Tammy Gregg, DO (Site Director, Alamosa RTT Family Medicine/OB)

I grew up in Fort Worth Texas in a family where my father was an electrician and my mother an accountant.  While in high school, I met a teacher with diabetes who taught anatomy and physiology class and she was the one who inspired me to go into medicine.  I wanted to understand her diabetes more and why she was unable to heal after having a surgery done.  Since then, I have pursued my career in medicine.  I went to University of North Texas

Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 2005.  I then went to Southern Colorado Family Medicine Residency and graduated in 2008.  Since then, I have been living and working in Alamosa, Colorado.What drew me to living in such a small community was the ability to be a part of the community as well as take care of the residents that live here.  I am able to see my patients in their everyday life and understand how they fit with the community here.  It’s also a great environment to raise my son. 

We have also started going to the local rec center and learning Taekwondo. I look forward to having a residency program here so that I can teach the residents that there is more to life than being the physician.  You can become a teacher, a friend, a student and a community leader all at once.

Joseph Quintana, MD

I attended University of Colorado Health Sciences Center Medical School.  My internship and residency were with the United States Army.  After serving an additional four years as a military family physician, I returned to my home town of San Luis, Colorado.  I have been the family physician in my home town for 27 years and am now semi-retired.  I serve as faculty preceptor for the Rural Training Track Residency Program at Valley-Wide Health Systems in Alamosa. I enjoy the Colorado mountains to include hiking the 14,000 foot peaks and bicycling all the mountain passes.  I also play trumpet with a mariachi band.

Alamosa Rural Training Track Residents Class of 2021

Amanda Mullen, MD 

I was born and raised in Madison, a small town in Virginia. I am the oldest of five kids, all home-schooled. My mom is a physical therapist and my dad is a brick mason.  While in undergrad and med school I spent summers doing masonry labor.  I went to college at University of Virginia and medical school at Virginia Commonwealth University.  I moved out to Colorado with my fiancé.

I chose family medicine because I love working with my hands and performing procedures. 

I want to practice full scope rural family medicine, and be able to take care of everyone from babies to the elderly.

Some of my hobbies include snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking, triathlons, hiking, swimming, running and binge-watching South Park. I am also a craft beer enthusiast!

Andrew Xu, MD

Denver is my home, but I’ve lived in many areas in the eastern United States while growing up. My parents were graduate students struggling to make ends meet. I am thankful to call Denver home for the last 18 years and see that the access to medicine for the underserved has improved.

I attended the Colorado School of Mines in Golden with the intention of either going into pre-med path to become a physician or to become an engineer. After graduation, I had a detour for several years starting my own

business as a software developer. The time was well spent, but my original desire to become a physician was unquenchable, which set the motion for my going back to school. My med school was the University of Colorado School of Medicine, fortunate enough to be in the same city. I had a wonderful but grueling four years of which reaffirmed my career choice as a family

physician. I chose Pueblo and Southern Colorado Family Medicine and the Alamosa Rural Training Track because of the wonderful people I met on my interview trail, the incredible training it offers as well as proximity to home. This was a good opportunity to venture outside of the comfort zone of my home city and yet stay within a drive away from friends and family.

I am most passionate about preventative and integrative medicine, endocrine, mental health and digestive disorders, as well as technology in medicine. Every day I am grateful for the opportunity to be a physician-in-training here in Pueblo. Looking forward to working with the people of Pueblo and to enjoy the surroundings!

Alamosa Rural Training Track Residents Class of 2022

Nathan LaFevers, MD

I grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania called State College, the home of Penn State University. My first job, and the one I returned to every winter during high school, was as a ski instructor. Like all of my fellow instructors, I dreamed of moving out to Colorado one day. But I took a couple of detours first, spending almost seven years in the Army, then returning to Penn State to major in electrical engineering. Finally, I attended the University of Oklahoma - School of Community Medicine, an integrated track within the OU College of Medicine that goes beyond the required curriculum teaching students to improve the health of entire communities.

I am very excited to have finally landed in Colorado, and now that I’m here I don’t intend to ever leave. I’d like to live and practice medicine in a small mountain town after residency, and that’s why I chose the Southern Colorado Family Medicine – Rural Training Track program. I believe this is the best place to learn the skills I’ll need to take care of the health of whole families in a small town like the one I grew up in.

I still love to ski, although these days I prefer to earn my turns in the backcountry, and I love just about every other mountain sport there is, from rafting and backpacking in the summer to winter mountaineering; from rock and ice climbing to paragliding.

Rami Naseef, MD

I was born, raised, studied and practiced in my homeland country Syria. I am the youngest of my four siblings. I studied medicine in Aleppo University Faculty of Medicine and trained in anesthesiology in Damascus, the capital. I practiced for four years before the Syrian civil war started. My young family and I moved to Saudi Arabia for peace, and I practiced there for four years before moving to the United States. I spent the last four and a half years in Tucson, Arizona. Tucson gave me the home and the opportunity to start my medical career here in the US.

I am very fortunate to continue my career in Family Medicine. Family medicine allows me to build bridges with patients and their families, to learn new skills and to practice a wide variety of procedures at the same time. I am looking forward to being able to take care of every patient in different settings from babies to elderly.

I chose Southern Colorado Family Medicine and the Alamosa Rural Training Track because of the wonderful people I met during my interview and the incredible training it offers.

I enjoy socializing with friends and sometimes playing on my guitar.
