The Colorado School of Public Health offers physicians two residency programs: Occupational & Environmental Medicine and Preventive Medicine. Occupational Medicine and Preventive Medicine residents require both practical rotations and coursework leading to the MPH degree in order to be eligible to take board certification exams.
Occupational & Environmental Medicine Residency
The Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency/Fellowship is accredited as a two-year residency program which trains physicians in occupational and environmental medicine. We seek applicants with fellow status and prior internal medicine, family practice, or other appropriate clinical training.
Preventive Medicine Residency
The General Preventive Medicine residency is available to physicians at the PGY -2, -3 or -4 level. The educational program integrates academic and practicum experience. The academic portion of the training is provided by the Master of Public Health (MPH) program. Residents spend a large percentage of their time during the two years gaining practicum experience at affiliated health care agencies with release time for taking MPH course work and participating in other residency related activities. The majority of the MPH course work is completed in the first year so that the second year can be devoted to educational activities at the practicum sites. A one-year, practicum year only program is available to residents who already have a MPH or MSPH degree.
