NCFM Medical Student Rotations
Fourth-year medical students from many U.S. medical schools complete rotations at North Colorado Family Medicine (NCFM). NCFM offers rotations in Outpatient Family Medicine, as well as subinternships in Inpatient Adult Medicine, Inpatient Obstetrics/Newborn, and Inpatient Pediatrics.
We look forward to your application for a medical student rotation. We have always enjoyed the presence of medical students, and feedback we have received from medical students indicates they have found their time at North Colorado Family Medicine to be an educationally rewarding experience.
If you have any questions or comments please e-mail or call (800) 336-6236.

- Due to the fact that medical student space is limited and the program is committed to assisting Colorado with its health workforce needs, students who apply to this program should have the potential to be resident physicians in the State of Colorado. This means the student could potentially become a licensed physician in Colorado by their second year of postgraduate training. Please visit the Colorado State Board of Medical Examiners web page for further information.
