The Colorado Health Foundation
Uptown Primary Care is proud of its affiliation with the The Colorado Health Foundation, an independent, nonprofit, community service organization committed to excellence in health care by supporting medical education, research and philanthropy. This affiliation strengthens the program’s ability to provide care in the community and continue innovation in graduate medical education.
We invest in training and recruiting health professionals to deliver integrated primary care with the goal of improving access and quality for Coloradans. Research shows that primary care is less expensive and delivers equal or better outcomes than specialty care alone. Primary care providers can include family physicians, internists, pediatricians, obstetricians/gynecologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

University of Colorado Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program
The Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program of the University of Colorado was established in 1977 as one of the first federally funded primary care training programs in the nation. Building on a rich history, this program is one of the premier primary care residency training programs in the country. We provide flexibility in our primary care curriculum to prepare program graduates for careers in clinical practice, academic general internal medicine, and/or to pursue training in primary care specialties such as Geriatrics, Palliative Care, and Public Health. We are very proud of the many elements that set our program apart from others, and we are confident that you will receive outstanding primary care training as a resident at UCD. The partnership with Uptown Primary Care is part of that great training.
