Chief Medical Residents



Scott Freeman, M.D. 

Scott came to Denver from Richmond, VA after graduating from medical school at Virginia Commonwealth University. He visited many programs along the interview trail, but ultimately could not find any that rivaled the unique combination of clinical rigor and camaraderie he found at CU. Scott's research interests have centered around cardiopulmonary hemodynamics, particularly in pulmonary hypertension and advanced heart failure, and he plans to pursue a Cardiology fellowship after completing a year as Chief Medical Resident. A former collegiate distance runner, Scott loves the many scenic trails Colorado has to offer, as well as the wide selection of excellent golf courses open nearly year-round. Scott and his lovely wife, Kori (7th grade English teacher) welcomed their first child, Luke, earlier this Spring, and they are grateful that both sets of grandparents live nearby!
