COLORADO FAMILY MEDICINE RESIDENCIES
RESIDENT RURAL ROTATIONS
The Colorado Commission on Family Medicine understands that healthcare can be difficult to access in remote areas of Colorado. Our goal is bring healthcare to underserved communities and make a positive impact on their health and wellbeing. Join us in our mission to bring healthcare to those in need.
Family medicine residents training in Colorado are required to complete a one-month rotation in a rural or under-served community. This rotation is a significant component of a family physician’s training in Colorado.
The purpose of the rural rotation is for the resident to experience first-hand the challenges and rewards of being a competent family physician in a rural and medically under-served setting with limited medical resources. This rotation offers the resident the opportunity to draw upon her/his accumulated pool of knowledge in a real-life setting some distance from the training program.
