The CU pre-med class was a comprehensive crash course in medicine that affirmed my interests and gave me a confident skillset to take to medical school. Highly recommend this for anyone considering a career in the health professions!
The physician educators at CU have a passion for what they do, and it shows. They are knowledgable, thoughtful, and have incredible insight into the nuances of caring for the ill or injured.

Totally dialed-in to their craft, entertaining, and never dull. These guys know how to do CME right!
I took the 10th Mtn Medicine class on a whim and it was phenomenal experience. I had no idea I could learn so much over a weekend. Very impressed with the quality of teaching and the knowledge of the team!
