As a vital healthcare source, Parkview’s service area includes Pueblo County and 14 surrounding counties, which together represent 350,000 total lives. The extensive socioeconomic diversity of the regional population supports a stimulating training experience with broad diagnostic challenges. Pueblo County is a designated Health Professions Shortage Area and provides care to a medically underserved population.

Our residency program is committed to your success. We maintain a supportive small-group atmosphere that is well suited to creating strong bonds between residents, faculty, and patients. Whatever your professional goals may be, at Parkview Medical Center, you will complete your transformation from "student" to "physician" while forming friendships that will last a lifetime.
