Clinical rotations take place at the Huntsman Cancer Institute on the University of Utah campus, our satellite clinics at Sugar House Health Center or Farmington Health Center, and at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. These very different facilities, give residents a well comprehensive experience in both academic and private practice. In addition, our association with Primary Children's Hospital affords our residents access to a significant number of pediatric cases with a wide variety of cancer diagnoses. This considerable pediatric experience is one of the program’s greatest strengths.
During clinical rotations, while under staff supervision, residents evaluate all new patients and are responsible for the patient's management while under treatment, including the simulation, treatment planning, and execution of treatment. It is expected that residents follow patients through the course of therapy from start to follow-up. Rotations are one to three months in length, and residents usually work one-on-one with a faculty physician who has one or more designated areas of special interest with advanced expertise. Resident progress is evaluated and discussed on an individual basis following the completion of each clinical rotation.
