Primary Care Track Welcome Retreat 2021

Primary Care Track

The Primary Care Training Program at the University of Colorado Denver is one of the pre-eminent training programs for resident physicians committed to the care of vulnerable patients while developing skills as leaders, advocates, innovators, and/or researchers.

Established in 1977, our program was one of the first primary care tracks in the country and we currently accept 9 residents per year. Our program is continually evolving to meet the needs of our graduates and patients. We pride ourselves on the diversity of experiences and training sites we offer, the excellence of our housestaff and faculty, and the flexibility we can offer to tailor each resident’s training to their individual needs.

In July 2020, Denver Health became the official clinical home base for the Primary Care program. Similar to residents in other tracks, Primary Care residents also rotate at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center and UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital

All primary care trainees have their continuity clinics within the Denver Health system. This includes an expanded array of ambulatory electives and offerings in Colorado’s premier safety-net institution. Our goal is to train top-notch residents to go into careers in clinical practice, academic general internal medicine, health services, and fellowships in primary care sub-specialties such as Geriatrics, GIM/Public Health, and Palliative Care.
