Graduate Medical Education & CMEE

There is a looming shortage of primary care physicians in Colorado and the Mountain West Region. The Center for Medical Education Excellence (CMEE) is dedicated to the development and support of new and existing osteopathic postgraduate training programs. CMEE strives to identify new opportunities for graduate medical education and to assist in the creation of those new programs. Once the programs are up and running, CMEE continues to work with member institutions to provide academic support and oversight as well as continuous quality improvement.

The goal of CMEE is to expand opportunities for osteopathic postgraduate trainees in the Mountain West Region and to ensure the highest quality of training in existing programs.
