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 or higher 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 majority of their time during the two years gaining practicum experience at affiliated public health care, and community organizations with release time for MPH course work and other residency related activities. A two-year, practicum only program is available to residents who already have an MPH or equivalent degree.
