Rural medicine training programs
The Elko Family Medicine Residency Program gives residents the opportunity to understand the unique needs and practice of rural medicine throughout the state. Elko's hospital has a catchment area of 130 miles where our rural residents have exposure to all regional socio-economic groups and train in all areas of the hospital, with no closed units. They care for newborns, assist with c-sections, manage critical ICU cases, and become proficient in bread and butter pediatric and adult illnesses like pneumonia and asthma. The ER experience is robust, as Elko is a travel corridor with an active mining industry--allowing for exposure to a variety of trauma and other emergent medical issues.
