Program Leadership

Program Director's Welcome


The University of Colorado Internal Medicine Residency program provides innovative educational opportunities to future internists and subspecialists. We pride ourselves on providing trainees with the freedom to individualize their curricular content and residency rotation selections according to their educational needs. This resident centered approach is exemplified by our educational matrix – residents choose one track: primary care, categorical, or hospitalist as well as one pathway: research, clinician educator, or leadership as the foundation for their educational programming. In addition, we have a physician scientist training program, ultrasound training starting this next academic year, and a multilayered mentorship program. Our mission is for each resident to fully realize his or her potential, training the future leaders of internal medicine. Our graduates select a variety of career paths and are well positioned to impact positive change in areas such as academics, patient care, education and public policy. Our program strives to prepare graduates to excel in their pivotal roles as physicians, researchers, teachers, and community leaders.


-Mel Anderson, MD, FACP, Interim Program Director


Note: Effective May 1, 2016, the Interim Program Director is Mel Anderson, MD.
