There are over 400 clinical faculty members in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU SOM). Our clinical faculty are physicians, physician assistants, nurses, psychologists, and other allied health professionals throughout Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana and are generally volunteer faculty who teach residents, medical students, physician assistants, and nursing students in the hospital, in their private offices and in outpatient settings.
Clinical faculty members provide an invaluable service to the Department of Pediatrics and are promoted on the basis of their teaching, community service, and contributions to the Department, the community, and to medicine and child advocacy in general.
Office of Community Based -Medical Education (OCBME)
Because community-based clinical faculty members play such a vital role in the teaching medical students, residents, fellows, physician assistants and other allied-health professional, the School of Medicine has created an Office of Community Based -Medical Education. This new office is headed by Dennis Boyle, MD, Assistant Dean OCBME and supported by Nicole Bost, Manager OCBME located in Education Building 2 North, 5th floor, office 5223 on the Anschutz at 303/724-0044. The office was created to support, strengthen, and celebrate the work of volunteer clinical faculty. This new office has developed a very useful website that is a great resource for clinical faculty in their teaching endeavors. It includes videos of teaching points, online teaching modules, career development workshops and Crowd Wisdom which is a CU SOM online faculty development tool for fulltime and volunteer faculty who are looking to improve their academic skills.
