The Division of Internal Medicine of the University of Utah School of Medicine (SOM) and Huntsman Cancer Institute are looking for motivated candidates that are interested in developing and expanding their clinical reasoning and medical expertise in providing compassionate, evidence-based care at the top of their perspective licenses. 

The Hospital Medicine Post-Graduate APC Fellowship is a 12-month program and a joined Huntsman Cancer Institute and University of Utah School of Medicine effort that provides structured learning in either the traditional Internal Medicine track or the Hematology-Oncology track.

Internal Medicine Fellowship: Rural Track

Fellows interested in the Rural Track will be primarily at our partner hospital, Mountain West Medical Center in Tooele, UT. This track provides the opportunity to work with a rural demographic treating patients in both the Acute Internal Medicine floor and Intensive Care Unit. Those interested will receive fantastic experience that will help build the skill set to work in rural and remote hospital medicine. Rural Track Fellows will still rotate through specialty rotations at the University of Utah and participate in didactics along with their Fellowship colleagues in the Traditional IM Track.

The primary goal of the program is to help APCs broaden and strengthen their medical knowledge and clinical skills, with a focus on inpatient medicine, through a systematic, collaborative, and evidence-based curriculum consisting of both didactic and clinical components. This program is recognized by The Association of Postgraduate PA Programs (APPAP) and has been accepted for membership to the Association of Post Graduate APRN Programs (APGAP). 

Currently, the program offers a stipend of $75,000 for the Internal Medicine track and $75,000 for Hematology-Oncology track. Both salaries include full-time benefits, including health and dental insurance as well as 401K contributions. 

Regarding the application process, there is a set application timeline. Application cycle opens January 1 and closes April 15th (for a start date of August-December of that same year). Each track will accommodate 2-6 fellows per year, depending on the needs and capabilities of the Internal Medicine and Hematology-Oncology groups.
