School Overview

School Info

The School of Medicine is a part of the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center, located in Denver and Aurora, CO. The Health Sciences Center also includes the schools of dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and the graduate school.

Curriculum

The curriculum is designed to provide the scientific and clinical background to prepare graduates for the practice of medicine. Most of the basic science courses are taught during the first two phases. Students attend clerkships during the third and fourth phases. The third phase includes the core clerkships, which can be taken in any order, and the fourth phase consists almost entirely of electives. As part of the School`s commitment to produce more generalists, a 3-year course is integrated into the required medical school curriculum. The course, entitled Foundations of Doctoring, will place students with practicing generalist physicians one-half day each week to see patients over time, learn interviewing and diagnostic skills, and experience primary care practice.

Facilities

Basic science and clinical opportunities for the medical students are located throughout the Denver area in a number of hospitals and clinics. Rural health experiences are found throughout the state of Colorado.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
