The Rural Medicine Fellowship offered through Utah Valley Family Medicine Residency was created as a result of feedback of current rural health providers. As the fellow develops a personalized curriculum, direction and support are available.

The goal of the fellowship is to allow a physician who desires rural practice to further identify, develop, and solidify the procedural, clinical, and academic skills they desire to include in their medical practice.
