A Message from Linda Montgomery, MD
I love training family doctors at the University of Colorado Denver and Denver Health Medical Center. The positive aspects of training here are too numerous to count, but here are some of my favorites.
Our Residents – Our skilled and dedicated residents carry the pride of our specialty into our academic medical center. They work side-by-side with house staff of all specialties sharing skills, experiences and mutual respect. In this university environment our residents are important role models for students of all health professions.
Our Faculty – As program director I am incredibly fortunate to have many outstanding faculty members dedicated to educating residents. Our faculty of physicians, nurse practitioners, PAs, behavioral scientists, educational specialists and pharmacologists have tremendous strengths in behavior change, advanced obstetrical skills, diabetes, women’s health, sports medicine, rural medicine, practice management, chronic care, research, international medicine, community outreach, indigent care, pediatrics, procedural skills and on and on. Visit the faculty section of our website to view the breadth, depth and vast experience of this amazing collection of people.
Our Department of Family Medicine (DFM) - The DFM at the University of Colorado has been a national leader since the beginning of the specialty of family medicine. Under the leadership of Department Chair Frank deGruy, the department is forging the many skills and relationships that will make the Future of Family Medicine concepts a reality. Our residency enjoys a seat at the center of collaborations among the University of Colorado, Denver Health and numerous community organizations. The future of family medicine begins at the University of Colorado’s Department of Family Medicine.
