Welcome to the University of Missouri – Kansas City Internal Medicine – Pediatrics Residency! We have a strong academic program that boasts of its participants, graduates and their accomplishments. Located in the heart of the Midwest, our residency offers a quality training experience in an affordable and livable city. Our residency program is comprised of three individual hospitals that come together to provide a diverse and excellent education.
Our program provides the environment and teaching services needed for a successful experience, but our personnel make the program excellent. Our residents are hard working, intelligent and dependable; but they are also feisty, opinionated and unrelenting. The faculty members are supportive and innovative. This combination results in a dynamic residency program that consistently meets the needs and desires of our individual residents. Our residency family bands together to support one another, as our senior residents serve as mentors to the more junior residents.
Kansas City is a great place to live – whether you are raising a family or enjoying the single life. Kansas City provides a wide spectrum of activities from the Kansas City Royals (major league baseball), Chiefs (national football league) and Sporting KC (professional soccer) to the Lyric Opera and some of the best jazz you will ever hear. Our city is proud of its outdoor activities and provides walking, biking and nature trails throughout the metropolitan area. And for those with voracious appetites, the best barbeque in the world is available here (my own opinion).
Explore our information and then come visit us! We know that all we have to offer will pleasantly surprise you.
