Since 1979, the University of Colorado Denver has offered fellowship training opportunities for physicians wishing to establish academic careers in primary care. Funding for the fellowship programs has been provided by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, the Health Resource Service Administration (HRSA) through Faculty Development Awards for existing faculty in Family Medicine, General Internal Medicine, and General Pediatrics; and by the National Research Service Awards (NRSA) Program.
Goals and Objectives
Since 1993, family physicians and general pediatricians have also been enrolled in an integrated program for research training in primary care. These generalist fellowship programs provide:
- Didactic instruction in research methods
- Public health
- Clinical teaching
- Administrative skills
- Substantial protected time for research
At the end of the two-year program, fellows are prepared to assume roles as academicians in Departments of Family Medicine, Divisions of General Internal Medicine or General Pediatrics.
The fellowship does not adhere to a match date, and therefore schedules interviews at the convenience of the applicant and of the admissions committee. Fellows admitted into the program begin on July 1.
The University of Colorado Denver encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
To apply to the program please send the following:
- Statement of goals for the fellowship
- 3 letters of recommendation
