Our Program’s
Mission

Established in 1976, this ACGME/AOA dually accredited program is an outstanding, university-affiliated, community-based residency program, which is unopposed. At this 8-8-8 program, the faculty and staff are dedicated to our mission of training rural family physicians of the highest quality.

We have been very successful in our goal of training rural family physicians! Over 70% of our graduates are practicing in small towns throughout the Rocky Mountain West, many of them in the state of Wyoming.

Our program includes office-based procedures such as colposcopy with LEEP, NST and obstetrical ultrasound, vasectomy, exercise treadmill testing, and more. Exceptional hospital training occurs mainly at Wyoming Medical Center, but is complimented with rotations in Salt Lake City, UT for pediatrics and Spokane, WA for high risk and operative obstetrics, as well as a rural rotation at area hospitals in Wyoming.

Through the University of Wyoming, the program is affiliated with the University of Washington School of Medicine via the WWAMI Program, as well as Rocky Vista University School of Osteopathic Medicine.

Our residents receive training and certification in ACLS, ATLS, ALSO, NRP, FCCS, PALS, STABLE and Wilderness Medicine courses. They are welcomed into the offices of many of the local private community physicians to complete their outpatient specialty experiences. While rotating with several of the WMC sub-specialists, they have the opportunity to travel to outlying communities for specialty clinics.

The residents also take advantage of several moonlighting opportunities in our communities.
