Residents at work

We strive to make learning fun, not just in the ED but also during resident conferences. Our most highly rated conferences are procedural/skills days, simulation conferences, and our month-long cadaver lab. Over the last few years, our conference days have evolved to include more simulation and small-group sessions targeted to each PGY class (each class splits up for separate activities planned just for them). In 2015, we held our first annual resident wellness day in place of the typical resident conference, it was such a hit, we have decided to continue including this in our yearly conference schedule.

Our senior residents embrace their role as teachers and mentors. Residents advocated for the implementation of a resident teaching shift, which began in 2015. The primary goal of these shifts are: to assist PGY3 residents with developing a variety of teaching and administrative skills, and enhancce the learning experience of those rotating in the ED. Our residents are very involved with medical student education. The emergency medicine interest group (EMIG) is the largest interest group at UMKC School of Medicine. Our residents help train the EMIG members to compete in SimWars competitions and  regularly give lectures and host workshops for the interest group.

Residents outside of work

When not working, residents enjoy spending time together. Favorite activities include attending Royals, Chiefs, or Sporting KC games, playing Pickleball, or hitting up local bars. Our residents enjoy gathering up their four legged friends and meeting at local dog parks. Regularly planned gatherings include an annual intern welcome party in late June, and a potluck or barbeque dinner in the fall. Frequently, the intern resident on Anesthesia hosts a monthly party.
