To address the need for broadly trained primary care physicians in Wyoming, the Wyoming Legislature established two residency programs in the specialty of family medicine. These two accredited, university-administered, community-hospital based family medicine residency programs are located in Casper and Cheyenne. They enroll up to 42 residents (14 in each of three years).  The two family medicine centers maintain a 1:4 faculty to resident ratio. The program at Casper began in 1976 and is affiliated with Wyoming Medical Center.  The program utilized the services and facilities provided by the Educational Health Center of Wyoming.  The Rural Training Track Program is a partnership with the Casper core program and Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital that provides a unique, hands-on experience for rural practice by training in the rural community of Thermopolis, Wyoming.  It enrolls up to 3 residents (1 in each of three years).  Casper’s Geriatric fellowship is Wyoming’s only post-graduate medical education training program.  The fellowship provides training specialized in geriatrics to produce Board-certified geriatricians to care for the state’s aging population.  The Cheyenne program became active in 1980 and is affiliated with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.  The program utilizes the services and facilities provided by the Educational Health Center of Wyoming and has a close working relationship with the Veterans Administration Hospital.  Both centers include spacious examining rooms; treatment and casting rooms; x-ray facilities; offices for faculty, residents and staff; complete laboratories; multiphasic research areas; conference rooms; business offices and roomy waiting rooms with play areas in the clinical component. In the educational component, both include large auditoriums; learning resource centers and administrative offices. Particular emphasis in both centers is placed on preparing physicians for rural practice and other facets of medical practice that are unique to Wyoming.

The University of Wyoming medical contract program enhances medical education opportunities for Wyoming residents.  In March 1996, the University of Wyoming became a partner in the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) Program.  The WWAMI program is Wyoming’s medical school and the program delivers the first two years of the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM) medical school curriculum on the University of Wyoming campus.  The remaining two years of the curriculum are spent in clinical rotations throughout the five-state WWAMI region.  Twenty Wyoming residents are accepted into the WWAMI program each year and receive their M.D. degree from the UWSOM.  For further information, contact the Wyoming WWAMI Office, College of Health Sciences, Laramie, Wyoming 82071, (307) 766-2496.
