As part of your visit, you’ll have a chance to ask questions about our program and see what makes the world-class CU Anschutz Medical Campus so special.


Where We'll Be

Come meet us! We’d love to welcome you to beautiful Colorado for a visit, but you don’t have to travel to engage with the University of Colorado. Our team makes several in-person visits to campuses across the country each year. That gives us a chance to meet you where you are, answer your questions and show you what makes CU Pharmacy such a great place to become a healthcare leader.
