Family medicine physicians have some of the broadest skill sets in the world of medicine, and our curriculum is intended to create physicians fully ready to enter any kind of practice they desire. Our mission is to help our community thrive by fostering advocates for social justice and equity. Our didactic curriculum has been carefully designed in partnership with the University of Colorado Family Medicine Residency and enhanced with changes to the ACGME requirements for Family Medicine. This partnership will allow our residents to have a rich and intensive didactic experience, with the benefit of years of careful thought and resident input.
Residents will spend most of their time at Montbello Clinic in Montbello, Denver, CO. When our residents rotate through hospitals our resident’s home hospital will be Denver Health Hospital, with some rotations at Children’s Hospital and the University of Colorado Hospital. Denver Health also runs a clinic at nearby ski resort, Winter Park, where residents will have the opportunity for hands on sports medicine training.
