David and Ellen are well-respected members of the clinical faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and have created an interest in residents each year for the opportunity at a rural clinical rotation in Glenwood. Drs. David and Ellen have inspired several residents to pursue careers in rural medicine and the residents who do spend time here regularly remark what an exceptional hospital and pediatric practice is in the Roaring Fork Valley.
