Resident/Fellow Research

In the UMKC Department of Community and Family Medicine one of our program goals is to promote scholarly work for our residents, fellows and faculty. Before graduation our residents are required to do a research project, prepare a poster presentation and participate in Research Day in the spring. It is also strongly encouraged to present these projects in other venues and publish scholarly work whenever possible.

Below you will find each year’s poster presentations of our graduating residents. Click on the Research Day header to review the PDF booklet of posters presented during Research Day that year.
