The University of Colorado Denver operates the health sciences-related schools of the Anschutz Medical Campus and is the largest academic health center in the Rocky Mountains. The Anschutz Medical Campus is comprised of a school for medicine, pharmacy, nursing, dentistry, and public health and a graduate school for biology and biomedical sciences. Part of the campus is situated on an old army medical center which is now known as the Fitzsimons Life Science District. The district is home to the Children’s Hospital, Colorado Science and Technology Park, and the future Veterans Affairs hospital. All CU Anschutz students are also eligible to enroll in classes at three other CU campuses while pursuing health program prerequisites.
The campus is one of the most efficient in terms of class schedules and use of classroom space. The atmosphere is fast paced and exciting lying in the heart of downtown Denver. I enjoy being on campus everyday with the opportunity to explore the city.
