Founded in 1923, Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo, Colorado, offers general acute healthcare and behavioral health specialty services. As a private, non-profit organization, Parkview is licensed for 400 beds and provides a full range of healthcare services including the region’s most experienced, certified Level II Trauma Center and the region’s first certified Stroke Center.

Parkview Medical Center is the leader in cardiac, women’s, emergency, and neurological services as well as behavioral health programs. 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. Residents will be able to truly enhance the lives of their patients while receiving outstanding clinical training.

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.
