Cedar City plans for Southern Utah College of osteopathic medicine.
The Cedar City Office of Economic Development is consulting with Colorado-based ROCKY VISTA UNIVERSITY's College of Osteopathic Medicine, a fully accredited, private college with the regional mission of providing primary care physicians for the Intermountain West. The college is presently affiliated with several Utah hospital systems that provide clinical education for some of its Utah students.
Rocky Vista University, in conjunction with the SOUTHERN UTAH AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTER, has established clinical placement offices in Cedar City and St. George for training third- and fourth-year medical students. They are also cultivating future residencies in the area that will augment the effectiveness of the early-acceptance program and ensure graduates will remain in Utah to practice.
