Rural Training Track for Family Medicine Residents

Rural Training Track for Family Medicine Residents

Enroll in our accredited residency program for Family Medicine Residents. Over three years, you’ll live and work in rural communities.

Valley-Wide Health Systems is pleased to offer the Alamosa Rural Training Track as one of our special programs. Its mission is to provide medical education and training for family medicine residents in an accredited residency program. During the residency, participants live and work in a rural Colorado community.

It all starts with a one-year internship at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in the mid-sized city of Pueblo. Residents spend the next two years in rural Alamosa. The curriculum is designed to mimic the practice of primary care physicians. This means that over the 24-month period, the residents will track their patients,  get a better understanding of chronic illness, and build a solid patient-physician relationship.

The residency program is offered in partnership with San Luis Valley Health Hospital. Valley-Wide is an inclusive community health center which aims to ensure medically underserved populations get the treatment and attention they need.
