Medicine / Pediatrics

Application Information

We participate in the NRMP and therefore only accept applicants who apply through ERAS.

Applicant Requirements

We do not have a minimum USMLE/COMLEX requirement for consideration. However, combined med-peds training is a rigorous curriculum, and therefore we do prefer applicants who score at or above the national mean.

No application will be considered until there are at least two letters of recommendation, three is preferred. We require at least one letter from an Internal Medicine or Pediatric department chairperson.

Any applicant who is currently a resident in another residency program or has completed any prior residency training, must submit a letter from their former or current Program Director, stating that he/she is a resident in good standing and acknowledging their understanding that the applicant is applying to our program

The entire application is reviewed for consideration for an interview. This includes performance on subject examinations, evaluations, previous experience and leadership.

Applications are reviewed by the Residency Recruitment Committee prior to decisions to interview. To allow our review committee time to thoroughly review our many qualified applicants, we will rarely extend interviews prior to Oct 1st. Occasionally, we offer interviews prior to receipt of the MSPE letters.

Once our interview positions are full, we create a waiting list. You will be contacted by our coordinator if a position becomes available.

We make every attempt to notify each applicant regarding the status of their application. You may contact our residency coordinator, Brie East, if you have any questions regarding the status of your application.

The program can sponsor J1, but in accordance with UMKC School of Medicine Policy we do not have the ability to sponsor H1B visas

Interview schedule

We offer interviews on Fridays beginning in late October and ending in January, excluding holiday weeks.

Applicants are invited to join current residents for dinner the evening prior to their interview.

Hotel accommodations are provided for applicants.
