Throughout training, University of Colorado Med-Peds residents receive support to engage in meaningful academic scholarship. Residents are encouraged to seek projects that align with their career goals and interests. Each resident will meet with a Med-Peds scholarship coach starting in the intern year. This meeting serves as an opportunity to talk about career plans and finding mentorship. At the University of Colorado, residents are surrounded by leaders in research, medical education, advocacy, QI, and much more. You will have no problem finding a project or mentor, but you will just need to figure out what and who to pick!
Our program supports our scholarship endeavors in many ways, including funds to attend conferences both locally and nationally. We also have a Med-Peds Scholarship Symposium, where each year we have an opportunity to share our work with colleagues and faculty. Instead of making scholarship feel like something extra, our program helps us find ways to integrate it into what we love to do and what we want to do with our careers. If you are fellowship-bound, you will have plenty of support to make sure you are on track to be a competitive and well-prepared applicant. Residents of our program are highly sought after from the most competitive fellowship programs in the country due to the caliber of our training program and the scholarship opportunities available at University of Colorado.
