Residency Leadership Award Winner
We know that Utah is home to some truly outstanding family medicine residents and we want to recognize those who are exceptional leaders. Each year in the spring, UAFP awards a current third-year resident from one of our four family medicine residencies in Utah the Resident Leadership Award. Congrats to the 2023 winner, Dr. Rich Wolferz from the U of U FM Residency!
Student Loan Repayment Programs
Doctors graduating from medical school can be saddled with several thousand dollars in student loan debt which can take several years - or decades - to pay off. There are several service-based programs that can help new physicians pay off a portion of or refinance their debt.
Pathways to Practice
Whether you are a medical student, current resident, or attending physicians looking for a refresher: Pathways to Practice: Personal Finance and Employment Contracts for Students and Residents can provide valuable career tips for new physicians managing, managing personal finance, and important tips for negotiating employment contracts.
