This Is The Time: This Is The Place.

The School has an amazing mission. We want to work with partners who can help us elevate the School to the next level by enhancing student support and creating cutting-edge facilities for our students.

Nationally known for its pioneering six-year program, the UMKC School of Medicine has been developing some of the country’s finest physicians for over 40 years. Since its inception in 1971, the UMKC School of Medicine has served as an intricate part of the urban core of Kansas City, Missouri, adjacent to the Truman Medical Center. The UMKC School of Medicine has been a model for educating new physicians by intertwining the academic and physical side of medicine.

The UMKC School of Medicine is ready to take the next step, and we want to work with partners who can help us elevate the School by enhancing student support and creating cutting-edge facilities for our students. Four campaign priorities have been identified:

  • Increase scholarship endowment to provide the financial resources needed to attract and retain diverse, talented students. To date, the campaign has raised more than half of the $1.5 million goal.
  • Improve facilities and renovate research areas. A $10 million goal.
  • Retain exceptional faculty to instruct students and engage in meaningful research through coveted endowed positions. To date, we have raised about half of the $4.3 million goal.
  • Enhance programs that complement our curriculum such as medical humanities, and the Youngblood Medical Skills Lab, and establish research and clinical centers of excellence. We have raised about $2 million of the $2.7 million goal.
  • Expand unrestricted support to take advantage of new opportunities. The goal is to increase unrestricted support to $200,000 each year.
