Program Director's Message
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Saint Joseph Family Medicine Residency!
Our program was founded in 1975 to serve our community, with a particular mission to care for the poor and vulnerable. We serve a diverse urban underserved population and pride ourselves on providing excellent team-based medical care to many patients who struggle to find care elsewhere, including a large Spanish-speaking and undocumented immigrant population from around the Denver metro area.
We offer robust clinical experiences and cultivate leadership and teaching skills that allow our graduates to excel in a wide variety of practice settings, from rural critical access hospitals to urban federally qualified health centers to academic family medicine. One of my favorite aspects of my job is watching residents grow from new interns to senior residents who are compassionate physicians ready to advocate for their patients and provide them with outstanding full-spectrum care.
Most of all, I am thrilled to be a part of our fun, bright, engaged, and caring community of residents, faculty, and staff. I hope you will consider joining us!Elin Kondrad, MD
