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 2020

Alexandra King, D.O.

I was born and raised in western Massachusetts and received my undergraduate degree at Middlebury College in Vermont. My wanderlust then took me across the ocean to Japan and then across the country to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I devoted a year to Americorps VISTA helping individuals with developmental disabilities and then worked at a senior assisted living facility. I then attended medical school at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona, where I was involved with the ACOFP

student group organizing volunteer events and speakers. I chose family medicine because I believe it is the core of medicine – long-term, full-spectrum primary and preventative care. I enjoy the opportunity to see patients of all ages and address their varying health concerns. My specific areas of interest include women’s health, osteopathic manipulative medicine, and geriatrics.

I plan to practice full-spectrum family medicine

in a rural underserved area after graduating, so I look forward to my training at the SCFM Alamosa rural training track.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Rory, and my cat, Trooper. We are avid hockey fans (go Penguins!) and enjoy traveling and painting. I love cooking, hiking, and rock climbing, and dream of being fluent in Japanese and Spanish.

Jim Do, MD 

I’m a Colorado native and grew up in Westminster. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelors in Integrative Physiology. Before medical school I took a couple years off to teach at the Denver School of Science and Technology at Green Valley Ranch while also training in Brazilian Jiujitsu and Muay Thai. At the time I thought I wanted to be a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter (MMA) and compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) but my plans changed when I was accepted to attend medical

school. Luckily I was able to stay in Colorado near family to attend the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora. In my free time I still practice Brazilian Jiujitsu but also enjoy cooking, writing, playing with my two white fluffy dogs, and watching superhero movies.

I chose Family Medicine because I love every aspect of the training and wanted to see a variety of patients from all backgrounds. My passion while in school was helping the underserved and I knew SCFM would be the best fit. The residents and faculty have all been very welcoming and their dedication to improving the community is why I chose SCFM for residency.

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!

Everyone was very friendly, they saw me quickly and didn’t use the “it’s a virus card” Doctor prescribed me meds, an injection there as well. Very refreshing visit, especially for the area!

I was singing the road trip blues... but this clinic was able to see me as a walk-in with virtually no wait at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Very thorough and efficient at every step. I highly recommmend them. Walgreens is across the street to have prescriptions filled. Not one complaint!
