Graduate Medical Education & RMOPTI

optiThere is a looming shortage of primary care physicians in Colorado and the Mountain West Region. Rocky Mountain Osteopathic Postgraduate Training Institution (RMOPTI) is dedicated to the development and support of new and existing osteopathic postgraduate training programs. RMOPTI strives to identify new opportunities for graduate medical education and to assist in the creation of those new programs. Once the programs are up and running, RMOPTI continues to work with member institutions to provide academic support and oversight as well as continuous quality improvement.

The goal of RMOPTI is to expand opportunities for osteopathic postgraduate trainees in the Mountain West Region and to ensure the highest quality of training in existing programs.
