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.
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.
