Reducing the Administrative Burden for Faculty
Maintenance of Certification Portfolio Approval Program Now Available
The University of Colorado School of Medicine now helps physician faculty members understand and meet specialty board requirements, thanks to the new Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Portfolio Approval Program.
Specifically, the University’s MOC program can award credits for Part IV
of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) program
, in which physicians must demonstrate participation in practice quality initiatives. The MOC program will formally approve quality improvement projects on our campuses and report your participation to the ABMS.
The program will reduce the administrative burden you face for maintaining certification and provide a centralized resource for selecting, developing and implementing quality improvement projects for faculty.

School of Medicine Branch Campus to Open in Colorado Springs
Clinical training opportunities for School of Medicine (SOM) third- and fourth-year medical students will expand to Colorado Springs as early as 2016, pending accreditation and approval.
This will be the first SOM branch campus and will serve Colorado Springs and El Paso County. The branch will support innovative education models, including increased opportunities for inter-professional health care education and possibly a longitudinal integrated clerkship program.
The SOM intends to increase the number of students it accepts and trains, thereby expanding the number of doctors produced in the state of Colorado. The expansion also provides for an increase in training sites and a broader range of physicians from whom students will learn. Communities in El Paso County can expect that some of the students who train in Colorado Springs will stay or return there to practice.
