Montana & Wyoming Residents
Welcome to the University of Utah School of Medicine page for applicants and medical students who are residents of Montana and Wyoming!
UUSOM is one of the most prominent medical schools in the Mountain West and we believe in fostering relationships with our surrounding states in order to provide access to medical education, in addition to medical care in our hospitals and facilities.
One of the ways that is possible, is through the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education Professional Student Exchange Program (WICHE PSEP). Through WICHE PSEP, incoming Montana and Wyoming students who are certified residents of their home states may be eligible to attend the UUSOM at reduced or resident tuition rates.
UUSOM also provides a variety of opportunities for students to get involved in rural medicine through the Rural & Underserved Utah Training Experience (RUUTE) program, and students also have the option to return to their home states for third year rotations.
We strive to provide positive and rewarding experiences for all of our current and future students here at UUSOM.
If you have any Montana/Wyoming/WICHE PSEP questions, please contact us!
"The longer I'm away, the more I feel proud and grateful to be from Montana. As a second-year medical student at the University of Utah, I'm receiving a great education with access to excellent teachers, a level 1 trauma center and all kinds of extracurricular opportunities I couldn't have found in my home state. I'm excited to bring all the knowledge and skills I gain here back to the people in my state and my community. The support of the WICHE PSEP program made this possible for me. Thank you!"
