Rural Colorado: Several previous residents of the UCD program have left the Denver metro area to practice in rural areas of Colorado. Many of these physicians are excited to act as preceptors to current residents looking to experience a physician’s life outside the big city. As medicine becomes more and more specialized, you can spend a month learning what it’s like to practice without easy access to a cardiac catheterization lab, an MRI machine, or even most subspecialties at a variety of excellent sites around the state.
