To better serve the needs of our students
and community, the University of Colorado School of Medicine has established a
branch in Colorado Springs.
In August 2014, the School of Medicine began enrolling
184 students annually in its MD program, increasing the class size from 160
students enrolled each year. The high caliber of applicants allows the School to
expand its class size while remaining highly competitive.
The branch provides clinical-training
opportunities for third- and fourth-year medical students. During their first
two years at the School, students complete basic science training on the
Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora and then, starting in spring 2016, the first cohort moved to Colorado Springs for
Newly constructed facilities at the
University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus provide office space for the
School of Medicine branch administration.
