The Rose Family Medicine Residency was built upon the oldest, university-affiliated, community-based generalist training program in the nation. The residency emphasizes individual assessment and life-long learning.
Begun in 1947 as a two-year general practice residency, the program converted to a three-year family medicine program in 1970.
The program's mission is to equip residents to be excellent family physicians in whatever setting they choose. The program is located in Denver and based at Rose Medical Center, a community hospital with a strong tradition of serving the central Denver community since 1950.
