Clinics & Hospitals
Residents in Family Medicine at the University of Utah experience a unique combination of training sites, inclusive of a diverse breadth of experiences and populations. Training sites include University community clinics, FQHCs (Federally Qualified Health Centers) and other urban underserved clinics, local community hospitals, and tertiary care centers.
Busy resident continuity practices provide full-scope family medicine services. Residents practice at one of three main continuity clinics, and are supervised by dedicated and skilled faculty at each clinical site. Each clinic serves diverse patient populations such as: former refugees, people with disabilities, Medicare and Medicaid, privately insured, socioeconomically disadvantaged, mental health patients, non-English speakers, LGBTQ+ populations, and those needing treatment for addiction, hepatitis C, or HIV PrEP. On-site clinical support teams include pharmacists, psychologists, nutritionists, and care managers. Each clinic also has radiology and pharmacy services on site, and utilize the Epic EMR (electronic medical record). Residents are provided additional opportunities with a secondary longitudinal clinic experience in another community, to further develop individual interests with specific populations such as pediatrics, obstetrics, Spanish-speaking patients, and the underserved.
