Hospital Medicine Physician Fellowship 


The fellowship’s primary focus is on the development of skills necessary to be a leader in hospital medicine, in one of three tracks: 

  1. Quality Improvement, Patient Safety, and Clinical Systems Redesign 
  2. Global Health 
  3. Translational or Outcomes Research in Hospital Medicine

Each fellowship track is associated with an intensive didactic or classroom-based course, clinical duties, and experiential work, as described below.  With each track, our fellows will have the opportunity to complete master’s level classes through the Graduate School and the Colorado School of Public Health with up to 9 credit hours of tuition per year (examples would be completing coursework for the master’s in public health, education, or business administration).

Global Health Hospital Medicine Fellowship

 

The Global Health Hospital Medicine Fellowship aims to train future hospitalist-leaders for careers in resource-limited and underserved settings. Fellows will pursue a total of six months of international work, in combination with six months at our tertiary care academic center in Aurora, Colorado. The program will provide training in health care delivery to resource-limited settings, quality and system improvement, cultural competency, teaching skills, and leadership. The fellowship is geared toward internal medicine graduates who plan to pursue career paths in global health and underserved populations in academic medicine.

Current international practice sites include Zimbabwe, Nepal, and Guatemala. While abroad, fellows are encouraged to conduct clinical research related to new or ongoing projects at their site(s) of interest. They will participate in regular teleconferences with mentors to discuss clinical and research questions. While at CU-Anschutz, fellows will be active in clinical hospitalist work, as well as teaching within the internal medicine residency and underserved pathway.

Fellows will have access to the wide range of global health-related resources at CU-Anschutz, including the Center for Global Health, the School of Public Health, and a wide range of faculty within the School of Medicine who are involved in international clinical work and research.
