Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo, Colorado, has been awarded a 5-year $770,000 federal grant from the U.S Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to train primary care internal medicine residents. Parkview has developed a new osteopathic internal medicine residency program, which will matriculate its first trainees in July 2012. The grant was a joint effort of Parkview Medical Center and Rocky Vista University - College of Osteopathic Medicine (RVU-COM) along with Rocky Mountain Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution (OPTI). The co-PIs of the grant are Steve Nafziger, MD, Parkview VP of Medical Affairs, and Thomas Mohr, DO, RVU Acting Dean. Judy Sikes, PhD, Parkview Administrative DME, and Marsha Sellner, RMOPTI Administrative Coordinator, were primary contributors to the application and Teresa Braden, DO, is DME and Program Director. The grant will provide funding for the new residency program that will serve the Parkview community and encourage more internal medicine residents to become primary care physicians in underserved areas. Parkview Medical Center is located in a Health Professional Shortage Area, and Pueblo is a Medically Underserved Community. Rocky Vista University, located in Parker, Colorado, opened its College of Osteopathic Medicine (RVUCOM) in 2008, enrolling 160 students in its 4-year program of study leading to a DO degree. Congratulations to all involved!
