How to help

The Alumni Office of the School of Medicine offers multiple opportunities for helping the school and the community.

Alumni Programs

Student Assistance
HOST - Help Our Students Travel program - has helped CU's fourth-year medical students find a friendly home while traveling for their residency interviews. The program matches stu​​​dents wit​h CU medical alumni who live in or near the cities where their  interviews are taking place. The alumni provide students with a free place to stay for one or more nights.

Medical Alumni Association Scholarship Fund
Each year, the Medical Alumni Association awards at least one $5,000 scholarship to a fourth-year medical student; she/he should be in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need. Applicants also submit a short essay describing: involvement with the Association; future engagement with CU School of Medicine alumna/alumnus; contributions to creating a diverse community.

Medical Alumni Association Stethoscope Fund
Donate a stethoscope to an incoming first-year medical student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Teaching Opportunities
