Being the 13th largest state by area, Utah is a center of transportation, mining and is a very popular tourist destination for outdoor recreation. In fact, Utah is only behind California and Alaska for state with the most national parks. Utah's population is spread out over a large geographic area, and, with only two medical schools, any medical student can gain experience in rural medicine, alongside practicing in urban areas.
