At the UMKC School of Medicine, we advance the health of our community through cutting edge research and innovative, patient-driven medical education. The School of Medicine’s story starts with a collective vision and spirit of partnership, resulting in an academic medical center that partners with six of the best hospitals in the region to provide its students with early patient interaction and high quality medical training.
The latest edition of the School of Medicine magazine is reaching mailboxes of alumni and friends with a new name — UMKC Medicine, which more directly reflects our identity. Check out the new UMKC Magazine.
The School of Medicine’s long-standing strengths in medical education are matched by an emerging successful effort to build biomedical research programs that are responsive to medical conditions in our community. Between 2003 and 2012, sponsored federal research has increased five times to more than $10 million.
The UMKC School of Medicine has an important mission: to foster excellence, innovation and scholarship in education, research and patient care.
To accomplish this mission, the school relies on the financial support of many alumni, friends and partners. It is this generosity that enables us to educate tomorrow’s medical professionals, to conduct cutting-edge research, and to improve the health of our communities.
We invite you to join our educational efforts, honor your ties to our medical school and make a difference in the future of health care.
