The program is also recognized for its unique educational value and comprehensive physician assistant training. Costs for our three-year program for both in-state and out-of-state students are lower or comparable to most two-year training experiences. In July of 2018, we will begin our inaugural year of the Colorado Curriculum. Based on current research in learning theory, this curriculum is designed to support learner mastery of the complex concepts of patient care. In addition to our extensive adult curriculum and integrated clinical training across all three years, we offer additional training in pediatric medicine and behavioral health as well as track options in leadership and advocacy, rural health, care of the underserved, and global health.
We are proud of our program and fortunate to be at the heart of a vibrant and growing health sciences center. The Anschutz Medical Campus has state-of-the-art hospitals, research centers, and nationally recognized health professional schools. Our campus was also built with a vision of interprofessional education; through our longitudinal interprofessional training curriculum, we are working together to educate all our students for team-based practice models of the future.
We have created this website to address the interests of applicants, students, faculty, staff, donors and anyone who is curious about our program. Thanks for visiting our site and come see us. We are in Colorado…a great place to be.
