Join the Volunteer Clinical Faculty at The CU School of Medicine

Office of Community Based Medical Education


The University of Colorado School of Medicine greatly values our Volunteer Clinical Faculty as important partners in fulfilling our mission to educate young physicians, deliver high-quality health care to our community, and make discoveries that will improve health. Physicians from our community who join us as Volunteer Clinical Faculty members can participate in different teaching opportunities and can serve on search committees, admissions committee and many other boards. If you are a potential Volunteer Clinical Faculty looking for information, please take a few moments to review our documents and peruse our site. The members of the Voluntary Clinical Faculty make a unique contribution to the School of Medicine academic mission as a result of their practical experience and diversity of opinion.


Clinical Faculty include primary care providers and specialists working in hospitals, clinics and private practices in the Denver metropolitan region and across the state. Community-based clinical faculty members also play a critical role in the school’s undergraduate medical curriculum; they serve as preceptors for students in their offices, and they teach in Foundations of Doctoring, communication and physical diagnosis courses, which are cornerstones of the medical student experience. Members of the clinical faculty also serve on important departmental and school-wide committees and contribute in countless other ways to the educational and clinical care programs of the School of Medicine.  Please click department criteria to look over the requirements for a Clinical Faculty Appointment from our Departments.


Please NOTE: Each Department at the School of Medicine has its own process for appointments and rankings.  For additional information, please review the criteria for each department.
