Omak Rural Training Program

The Omak Rural Training Program offers the best of both worlds as it combines the benefits of an Urban established Family Medicine program combined with the subsequent hands-on, real-world rural continuity experience.

The intern year in Tacoma provides:

  • Excellent training in the core clinical skills for family medicine
  • Inpatient medicine
  • ICU care
  • Inpatient pediatrics
  • NICU
  • High risk OB
  • Trauma-based emergency room care

In Tacoma there is the advantage of the volume and acuity of a regional referral center, and the breadth of pathology of a county of 938,000 population.

  • Longitudinal continuity family medicine training
  • Strong local physician, hospital and clinic support
  • Opportunities in balancing inpatient and outpatient care
