Office of Community-Based Medical Education 

The School of Medicine’s Clinical Faculty are educators, clinicians, researchers, and advocates across the state of Colorado. They contribute to the education of our trainees, unite with us in the care of patients, and collaborate on research and policy initiatives. 

Most Clinical Faculty are volunteers who participate in the School of Medicine’s educational mission as preceptors, small group facilitators, lecturers, and mentors. Most CU medical, physician assistant, and physical therapy students have the opportunity to rotate with community-based faculty at some point during their training. 

Our team in the Office of Community-Based Medical Education (OCBME) aims to build and promote best practice in community-based medical education. We welcome your outreach about how you can get involved and excel as a medical educator with the CU School of Medicine!
