Welcome to the University of Colorado’s Department of Family Medicine. We’re trying to transform the healthcare you receive so that it becomes high quality care that is a good value—so that all your health needs are addressed in a coordinated, integrated fashion. We are also training people to give that kind of healthcare, and we support research that answers the questions about the best possible care. This is hard work, but we’re making progress. There are several words we use a lot around here: service, innovation, collaboration. These words signify values that we hope you can see in all our work and in all our programs.
We are not only a member of the University family, but we are also part of the community around us—in fact, we serve as a bridge between the two, bringing the resources of each to the other. We believe that an academic health center should participate in the life of the community in which it is embedded, and that we should grow and succeed together.
There’s a lot to see here—we’re a large department with a lot of programs—but we have tried to organize these pages so that whether you are looking for a member of our faculty or staff, a clinician to serve your health needs, an educator with expertise in specific area of interest to you, a particular training program, or help with a research problem, you should be able to navigate easily to your destination. We have tried to make this place easy and friendly.
So welcome. We hope to see you again and again.
