Castleview Hospital is proud to be a small rural hospital offering many of the same opportunities and services that are often only available at much larger metropolitan hospitals.
As early as June of 2008, a cooperative partnership has existed between the University of Utah Health Science Center/Huntsman Cancer Hospital, in Salt Lake City and Castleview Hospital. This union allows for physicians currently in training at the University Medical Center (medical school graduates who are now doing medical residency training), to come to Castleview Hospital and receive further education, training and development of critical clinical skills needed for practicing in their specialty in a rural setting.
Under the direction and supervision of Leo Hardy M.D. (medical director of the laboratory at Castleview Hospital), who is an Anatomic and Clinical board certified pathologist and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Utah School of Medicine, residents may electively complete a month long rural pathology medical residency clerkship in Price at Castleview Hospital.
During the month of October Dr. Hardy has been supervising and working closely with Karen Moser M.D. who received her medical degree from the University of St. Louis, St. Louis, MO. with honors including: Alpha Omega Alpha (2007), Family Medicine Interest Group Program of Excellence Award (2005), Phi Beta Kappa (2003), First Place, Saint Louis University Dept of Biology Undergraduate Research Competition (2003), Alpha Sigma Nu, Jesuit Honor Society (2002) and Alpha Epsilon Delta, Premedical Honor Society (2002). Dr. Moser is currently in the third year of her four year pathology residency training program at the University of Utah.
Dr. Moser has been very eager to visit the Price area and to experience the unique challenges and demands of rural medical pathology practice.
"It is a privilege to partner with world class facilities such as the University of Utah Huntsman Cancer Hospital," said Jeff Manley, CEO at Castleview Hospital. "This is just one more way that CVH is most unique in striving to Create A Healthier Community for the citizens and patients of Carbon and Emery Counties."
