Instructional Faculty – Science
Appointed 2015. Prior to coming to Valor, Dr. Kortz ran a community practice of General and Transplant surgery in the Denver area. After 27 years he stepped away from clinical surgery to pursue different opportunities. The offer to teach and build the Human Anatomy and Physiology program at Valor came at a perfect time. He feels blessed and the Lord’s call to share his clinical experience. He and his wife are involved in volunteer support of Valor and Cherry Hills Community Church. Their three children attended Valor.
