PRACTICE SITES/ROTATIONS: Residents will train in a variety of ambulatory care clinic sites across Intermountain Healthcare’s system of hospitals and clinics. They will benefit in many ways from completing specialty training within a nationally-recognized integrated healthcare system. Primary rotation sites will exist at Intermountain Medical Groups Clinics, Intermountain Medical Center, and Primary Children’s Hospital. Residents will have a core continuity clinic rotation in family medicine or internal medicine. Additional required rotations include geriatrics, Castell House Calls, and practice management. Elective rotations in transplant, heart failure, psychiatry, pediatrics, pain management, diabetes, academia, oncology, pharmacogenomics, emergency medicine, managed care and others are also offered.
