UW Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic audiology supervisor Teresa Garcia performs a standard hearing exam on Eleanor Downey. UW Speech, Hearing Clinic Reopens to New Safety Restrictions and Appreciative Patients

As the University of Wyoming plans to welcome back students to campus this fall, a top priority for the university’s restart is the health and safety of students, staff and faculty.

The UW Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic, part of the Division of Communication Disorders, located in the College of Health Sciences, reopened its doors to patients in late June. The clinic has implemented a strategic plan of safety guidelines aimed at preventing clinic staff and patients from possible exposure to the coronavirus responsible for the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Teresa Garcia, supervisor of clinical services in audiology, says steps are taken before seeing each patient to protect against contact infections.

“Before each patient and in between all patients, the waiting room area and testing booth area are cleaned and wiped down with a sanitizing spray,” Garcia says. “Surfaces that are difficult to clean or that may be affected by the repeated use of a sanitizing spray are covered in a barrier film.”

The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has awarded $2.1 million to the University of Wyoming Family Medicine Residency Program at Casper to expand primary care residency training in Wyoming.

The grant supports the creation of a rural training track to better prepare physicians who will practice in rural communities throughout the state.

The grant, known as “Primary Care Training and Enhancement: Residency Training in Primary Care Program,” will extend over five years, with a focus on hands-on, full-scope training for family medicine physicians planning careers in rural medicine.

The rural training track is the first of its kind in Wyoming and will be centered in Thermopolis. Culminating nearly five years of preparation, the new program is a partnership between the UW Family Medicine Residency Program at Casper and Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital.
