What is The Faculty Club?
The Faculty Club is a private, “off campus” home, away from home, for the leaders of the Anschutz Medical community to gather socially with peers and colleagues and facilitate intimate conversations and serendipitous encounters that break down silos and foster innovation.
We are for the visionary, the innovator, the instructor, and the practitioner – those aspiring individuals who seek opportunity to push boundaries in all aspects of life. The Club’s atmosphere embraces the pioneering spirit of the West and the culture of achieving greatness.
We offer a sanctuary to celebrate, empower and connect medical professionals.
What do we offer?
Aside from being part of a club that includes the premier innovators, doctors, professors and inspirational leaders, the benefits of membership are many. The Founding Class of 2023 has the opportunity to be part of history and craft traditions and a culture that embodies the entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit.
The Club is the living room of the campus and an extension of members’ homes. It is a sanctuary where members host their intimate events, business meetings, and inspiring discussion groups. Additional member benefits are creative dining options, unique experiences, and member only amenities which can be found on the following page.
Whether members wish to connect with their peers or find rest and respite after a trying workday; The Faculty Club remains as a home to its members who are always chasing the unknown with grit and hope.
