Tracks for Medical Students

Medical students with a special area of interest may elect to participate in a track. Tracks provide additional opportunities to enhance learning and practice for students through special lectures, tailored clinical and research experiences, and sponsored mentored projects. Students will have knowledge and level appropriate responsibilities in each of the four years of medical school. To learn the requirements for application and what each track entails see the links below.

MD Program Applicants: The CU SOM curriculum is evolving! Content in the Urban Underserved and LEADs Tracks will be incorporated into the core curriculum starting in 2020 (all students will get this content). As a result, there will be no new track applications accepted for the Urban Underserved and LEADS Tracks for medical students applying to start in 2020 and beyond. The Research, Rural and Global Health Tracks will continue to accept new cohorts each year.​
