Dean Krugman

Advancing Science, Improving Care

Welcome to the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I’m Dr. Richard Krugman, and I’m proud to be the dean here, as well as first vice chancellor for health affairs for the University of Colorado Denver.

As you explore our website I think you’ll see what an amazing place this is. We’ve tried to address the interests of students, faculty, staff, patients, donors and anyone who’s curious about what we do here.

The medical school is defined by four core missions: education, patient care, research and community service.

We’re proud of who we are, and we are fortunate to be where we are. The medical school is at the heart of a new and growing medical campus. We work alongside state-of-the-art hospitals, research centers, biotech companies and other outstanding health professional schools.

And we are in Colorado … a great place to be. 

Thanks for visiting. Come see us. If you have any questions, we’re easy to get ahold of.

With warm regards,


Richard D. Krugman, MD
Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs and
Dean, School of Medicine
