Hospital Medicine Education

Welcome! Our mission in the Division of Hospital Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Campus is “Improving lives through excellence in patient care, education, and cutting-edge innovation.” 

Education is a cornerstone of the work that we do to improve lives. We truly believe in career-long and interprofessional learning which is reflected in our wide range of educational programs across every level of medical education from pre-medical students to our most senior faculty comprised of a diverse group of physicians and advanced practice providers. We encourage you to browse through our training programs to see how we are working towards our vision of “revolutionizing care of hospitalized patients."


  • Global Health Scholars Program: Aims to train future hospitalist-leaders for careers in resource-limited and underserved settings. Physician scholars will pursue a total of six months of international work, in combination with six months at Anschutz. 
  • Advanced Hospital Medicine Clinical Scholars Program: A one-year physician scholars program to provide expertise in point-of-care ultrasound, advanced evidence-based medicine, Bayesian reasoning in clinical decision making, and medical education. 
  • Fellowship in Quality Improvement and Health Systems Leadership: This fellowship is designed to provide excellent training, mentorship, and exposure for physicians to emerge from the program capable of leading change in complex healthcare systems.
  • Fellowship in Translational or Outcomes Research: A two-year fellowship to provide existing or new physician faculty with the building blocks to conduct clinical translational or outcomes research. The Division of Hospital Medicine fellowship has partnered with the SCORE fellowship for this track.


  • Resident Hospitalist Training Program (HTP): Provides a comprehensive and innovative preparation for residents seeking careers as hospitalists or hospital-based specialists, with a focus on the clinical skills required for hospitalist practice (procedural, ultrasound, consultation, oncology, palliative care); development of skills needed to embark upon systems improvement, intensive mentorship, and building of a supportive (and fun!) community. 
  • Advanced Practice Fellowship (APF): A 13-month program dedicated to enhancing the development of Acute Care Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants interested in pursuing a career in hospital-based medicine, specifically to provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for a provider to succeed in the challenging world of acute care medicine.

Medical Students:

  • Hospital Medicine Acting-Internship (HMAI): This course is available to fourth-year medical students planning to pursue careers in Internal Medicine, Hospital Medicine (including adult and pediatric hospital medicine), or those with an interest in systems improvement.
  • Health Innovations Scholar Program (HISP): A month-long intensive summer training program for medical students at any level who seek to lead innovative transformation of American healthcare. Using tools from LEAN, design-thinking, and change management, the students analyze the existing workflows, identify targets for improvement, and work with stakeholders to enact changes.
