Living in Colorado

Nicknamed the Mile High City for its 5,280-foot (1.6km) elevation, Denver is located a short drive away from the breathtaking Rocky Mountain Front Range. With over 300 days of sunshine, countless recreational opportunities, a thriving arts and culture scene, and the second-highest percentage of college graduates in the country, it’s no wonder Denver, Colorado ranked as the #2 Best Place to Live according to the 2020 U.S. News and World Report.

During the first year, CSD students will meet with members of the Graduate Advisory Committee (GAC) on a rotating basis to discuss the student’s progress in the CSD Program and any questions that may come up. Students will be expected and encouraged to seek advice from the GAC, Director, and/or other CSD faculty and student members prior to lab rotations, Comprehensive Examination, and any other situation requiring faculty consultation.

Career Development Office

The mission of the Career Development Office (CDO) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU Anschutz) is to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows acquire the non-science skills and experiences they need to successfully transition in their careers, both inside and outside of academia. We strive to supplement the world-class research training at CU Anschutz with world-class "non-bench" training, making our alumni highly sought after employees in a myriad of professions.

The CDO serves as an informational resource for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and administrators. We encourage you to visit the website often to learn about all the professional and career development opportunities that we provide - the skills and experiences you gather now can be the keys to opening the doors to your future.

As part of our career development program, we feature workshops that were developed through an NIH Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) award. In 2013, the NIH selected the Graduate School at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus as one of 17 universities nationwide to receive a BEST award. This award has enabled the development of unique career development opportunities in biomedical science training that increase the preparedness and employability of bioscience PhDs in the non-academic workforce, and we are excited to incorporate these opportunities into our programming.

Visit the CDO website for more information.

Grants and Fellowships

All students receive a stipend and benefits throughout their tenure in the program. Additional grants and fellowships are available to advance research projects and support career development.
