An excellent opportunity in community and wilderness medicine is available at St. John's Medical Center in Jackson Hole. Residents treat patients with blunt trauma and sports related injuries, cardiovascular emergencies and wild animal related injuries. There is plenty of opportunity to explore the magnificence of Wyoming and Montana, including fishing, hiking, rafting, sightseeing and exploring Yellowstone national park.
Like the Wyoming rotation, the Hawaii rotation offers an excellent experience in community medicine. Located at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Honolulu, this rotation offers a unique opportunity to treat tropical and marine diseases and includes dedicated hyperbaric medicine educational opportunities. Residents are provided with housing, rental car, and travel expenses for this month and there are ample opportunities to explore the local Hawaii culture.
