FM Undergraduate Medical Education​

Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine’s Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) program.

Vision: Graduates of the University of Colorado School of Medicine will value Family Medicine, its foundational role in fostering healthier individuals, families, and communities, and will see Family Medicine as a fulfilling career.

Mission: Fostering individual, family, and community health through innovative medical education.

To achieve our vision and mission, the FM UME program is involved in mentoring, advising, and providing educational offerings in the SOM, as well as in community education and inter-professional opportunities. We also play an important role in ensuring that our clinical faculty have the most current resources and training available.

The FM UME program includes a primary care curriculum consisting of either a traditional or integrated longitudinal medicine clerkship (ILMC), a mentored scholarly activity program (MSA), and robust advising program. Additionally, there are student interest groups, a strong rural track program, and a number of diverse electives ranging from providing clinical service to homeless patients in the Stout Street Clinic to a "Create Your Own" Family Medicine elective.
