What is a Teaching Health Center GME?

The Teaching Health Center Program supports the expansion of healthcare professionals in communities by providing training to physicians and dentists in community-based environments, with a particular emphasis on rural and underserved areas.

As of 2023, Community Health Centers, Inc. is proud to be the first teaching health center in Utah. In addition to our mission of providing quality, patient-centered primary care services to vulnerable and underserved individuals, we are equally committed to training healthcare professionals to effectively meet the needs of our culturally diverse population through our Family Medicine Residency program.

Why Choose a Teaching Health Center?

Ten-year outcomes demonstrate that Teaching Health Center (THC) graduates are more likely than other graduates to:

  • Practice in rural areas
  • Work within 5 miles of their residency program
  • Provide care for medically underserved populations
  • Engage in a broader range of medical practices, including buprenorphine treatment, behavioral health care, outpatient gynecology, and obstetrics
