Volunteer Clinical Faculty

Volunteer Clinical Faculty at the University of Colorado School of Medicine includes clinicians, healthcare practitioners, and professionals who make significant contributions to the institution's educational, clinical, or research endeavors. They serve on a paid/part-time, unsalaried, or voluntary basis.

In accordance with the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation standards, individuals involved in supervising, teaching, or assessing medical students must hold a faculty appointment at the University of Colorado School of Medicine or be supervised by a faculty appointee. Volunteer Clinical Faculty appointments are offered to utilize the expertise of health professionals from the community to support the School of Medicine curriculum. Through these appointments, individuals contribute by teaching the application of clinical and basic sciences in patient care contexts, thereby providing valuable support to the School of Medicine's curriculum.

We are extremely appreciative for the diverse and invaluable contributions of our volunteer clinical faculty. Their engagement significantly contributes to our institution's academic mission, enriching programs that benefit medical learners, patients, and the broader community.
