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.
ECHO (Extension for Community
Health Outcomes) Colorado offers free learning series to provide health
professionals and those whose work impacts health the opportunity to be part
of a community where experts and peers share knowledge and experience
using technology, not proximity, to connect.
ECHO series are one-hour weekly
or biweekly and (usually) span about six-sessions a cohort. They combine
the interactive learning and case-based sharing aspects of an
in-person training with the improved access and convenience of
connecting through an audio and video-based online experience (ZOOM).
