IVUmed Frontier Urology Education Program:
Addressing Healthcare Needs among Utah’s Medically Underserved

IVUmed’s Frontier Urology Education Program offers expert training for community healthcare providers to address a significant need among patients throughout Utah. Currently, Utah has a shortage of urology specialists to diagnose and treat significant conditions such as prostate cancer, women’s health issues, and common birth defects. Most of Utah’s urologists are located in the Salt Lake area, including all five of Utah’s pediatric urologists. Meanwhile, many of Utah’s over 1.5 million residents living outside of Salt Lake County must travel vast distances for specialized care. This creates significant geographic and financial barriers to accessing the services they need.

Utah has a large medically underserved population, many living in isolated rural areas where community health centers (CHCs) stand as their only source of primary healthcare. This leaves much of the responsibility for diagnosis of urological conditions to primary care physicians and nurses. In a recent survey of community health center personnel:

  • 100% of respondents, representing half of the centers in Utah expressed interest in receiving urology training.
  • Over 85% have requested multiple training events per year.
  • In their evaluations forms, a vast majority of participants have cited stimulating presentations that will change their practice patterns.

IVUmed is working to build upon our past program success to address the growing need for urological care and education among primary care providers and patients. We provide continued medical education (CME) and consultation addressing the most common conditions that affect children and adults.

IVUmed experts have conducted several on-site presentations in community health centers, and due to increased demand, IVUmed now works with the Utah Telehealth Network to broadcast urology training to primary healthcare providers throughout the state. The innovative program gives community providers the credentialed training they need to better diagnose, treat, and refer the many urological conditions among their patients. This increases local access to quality healthcare and enhances collaborative networks among primary care and specialist providers.
