FAQs

What kind of evaluation system do you use in your department to assess resident performance?

We use a variety of methods to assess core clinical and professional competency of our residents including:

  • Composite monthly rotation evaluations by the rotation directors, in person and written
  • Recently instituted daily evaluation process
  • Monthly mock oral exam for CA-3 residents
  • Mandatory annual ABA In-training examination
  • Resident participation in conference presentations
  • Resident / faculty mentoring program
  • Anesthesia Knowledge Test (AKT) 0, 1, 6 and 24 month exams
  • Quarterly evaluation performed by the Clinical Competence Committee with biannual written formal evaluations provided to both the ABA and the residents
  • Six month evaluations with program director

 

What is the performance of your residents on the ABA In-training exam and are all residents expected to take the examination

Residents are expected to take the ABA In-Training Examination annually, beginning with their first year (PGY-1)  On average our residents exceed 75th percentile in the nation in their growth and knowledge, as compared to their peers.  Their scores are part of our internal evaluation process.  Residents must achieve a minimum of 30% in order to be considered a resident in good standing.

 

How well have your residents performed on their oral examinations for the ABA?

Over the last six years, 2010-2016, our CA-3 residents have excelled on the ABA oral examination.  On average our residents have a 96% pass rate exceeding the 89% National Average.

 

Is there a minimum USMLE score for the UMKC Anesthesiology program?

When reviewing application, our selection committee will look first at applicants with scores of 210 and above and on first-try attempts for both Step 1 and Step 2.

 

Does Step 3 of the USMLE have to be completed prior to applying?
  • Step 1 must be complete and in your ERAS file before an interview will be granted.
  • Completing Step 2 is is not necessary to be offered an interview but should be completed as soon as possible to provide additional information for our selection committee.  No applicant will be placed on our MATCH rank list without providing a passing Step 2 score.
  • UMKC Policy requires a resident to success complete USMLE Step 3 prior to completion of the PGY-2 year however, our department requires successful completion of Step 3 prior to the engaging in CA-1 clinical activities so as not to interfere with the clinical and didactive learning experience in anesthesia.

 

Are there preliminary positions available?

We are a four-year categorical program and accept applicants at the PGY-1 (Clinical Base Year) year.

 

Where do most of your residents come from?

Most of our residents tend to come from the Midwest but we review applications from all across the country.  We believe in the diversity of our training program and encourage medical students from outside the region of Kansas City to apply to our program.

 

Do any of your residents end up in academic medicine?

Over the past several decades, approximately 10-12 percent of our residents have taken positions in academic medicine.  We believe this is consistent with the general experience of most training programs in the country.

 

What kind of library facilities do you have?

Each of the affiliated teaching hospitals has its own library. The hospital libraries are part of a private and public library consortium that extends to a 50-mile radius around Kansas City.  Scientific materials can be obtained digitally or though daily courier services from these various library sites.  Approximately 1 million titles are available, including the vast majority of journals.  In addition, the resident has access to the medical school library and the vast resources of the library system located on the main campus of the University

The residents also have their own newly renovated Academic Resource Center at Saint Luke’s Hospital which the department has committed resources to make the library complete with access to core text books and conference facilities all together.  Beginning November 2017, the majority of the core lecture series at Saint Luke’s Hospital will be conducted in the ARC.

 

How many hours does an anesthesia resident work, on average, in your program?

On average, the anesthesia resident works between 60-65 hours per week.

 

What is your average resident case load?

CA-1 year averages  1,525 procedures per year
CA-2 year averages 2,070 procedures per year
CA-3 year averages 1,180 procedures per year

 

Who employs the residents?

All residents are employed by the University of Missouri – Kansas City and are under the academic authority of the Anesthesiology Program Director and the Dean of the School of Medicine.

 

Who is the University of Missouri – Kansas City?

UMKC is a fully accredited, free standing University and is also a part of the University of Missouri system.  UMKC has a complete undergraduate curriculum as well as graduate programs in Nursing, Pharmacy, Law, Business and Engineering.

 

Does the University of Missouri - Kansas City have a university-owned teaching hospital?

UMKC School of Medicine, like many universities, does not own its own teaching hospital.  UMKC partners with teaching hospitals in the local environment to provide the clinical and in some cases the resources for research for medical students, residents, and fellows.  Harvard University School of Medicine has a similar arrangement.   UMKC is fortunate to have 5 extraordinary teaching hospitals that make up the UMKC teaching consortium. They include: 1) Saint Luke’s Hospital which is part of the Saint Luke’s Health System (11 hospital system), 2) Truman Medical Center, 3) Children’s Mercy Hospital, 4) Center for Behavioral Health, and 5) Kansas City VA Hospital. Each of these institutions is linked through affiliation agreements with the School of Medicine to provide educational instruction and faculty for the medical school. Each of these teaching hospitals is under the academic authority of the Dean of the School of Medicine. This 5 hospital teaching consortium provides unique advantages for students and residents as compared to a single hospital environment, in that there is an increase in patient care experience and in the number of faculty.

 

Who Employees the Department of Anesthesiology Faculty?

Regardless of the clinical site, all faculty members within the Department have unmodified academic appointments at the University and are under the educational authority of the Chairman of the Department and the Dean of the School of Medicine. Faculty members receive their compensation through an arrangement with their specific clinical employment site.

Residency Curriculum

Clinical Base Year-Internship or Fundamental Clinical Skills of Medicine Year (current ACGME terminology)

Practicing anesthesiologists must depend on a broad base of medical knowledge, skills and judgment.   To prepare residents for the clinical management of anesthesiology practice, residents spend their first year of training (Clinical Base Year) in our program rotating through some of  the subspecialties of medicine, as well as familiarizing themselves with some of the foundational aspects of anesthetic care.  This first year is co-managed by the Departments of Anesthesiology and Internal Medicine and is part of the 48-month teaching experience. This year is composed of thirteen (13) four week rotations, of which seven will be performed with the Department of Internal Medicine and six (6) within the sphere of the Department of Anesthesiology. The Internal Medicine In-Patient rotations are requirements from  the ACGME and include:

  • Cardiology (two rotations)
  • Nephrology (one rotation)
  • Pulmonary/Critical Care  (one rotation)
  • General Medicine (three rotations)

The six Anesthesiology centric rotations include the following:

  • General OR Anesthesiology
  • Cardiovascular ICU
  • Introduction to Pain Management
  • Introduction to Preoperative Assessment and Enhancement Center
  • Emergency Medicine (ACGME requirement)
  • Clinical Skills (Introduction to Echocardiography and Introduction to Ultrasound-guided Vascular Access)

All rotations are coordinated and supervised by the Department’s Program Director, who delegates the Internal Medicine PD to provide supervision for the Medicine specific months.

  

CA-1 and CA-2

The second and third years (CA-1 and CA-2) consist of training in clinical anesthesiology. Rotations include:

  • Cardiothoracic Anesthesia
  • Critical Care (Cardiovascular ICU and Neuroscience ICU)
  • General Anesthesia
  • ENT/ Plastics
  • Neuro Anesthesia
  • Vascular/Thoracic (part of the Cardiothoracic Anesthesia continuum)
  • Obstetrical Anesthesia
  • Orthopedic Anesthesia
  • Acute Pain Management
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Pre Op Assessment and Enhancement
  • Postoperative Anesthesia Care Unit
  • Urological/Cysto Anesthesia
  • Pediatric Anesthesia
  • Regional Anesthesia
  • Ambulatory Anesthesia/Out of OR Anesthesia
  • Introduction to Research

 

CA-3

The CA-3 year is designed to focus on preparing residents to enter fellowship training or private practice. Besides the required rotations, the resident will have the opportunity to choose at least three electives based on her or his career goals. A required one month rotation in TEE  will allow all residents to fulfill the necessary requirements to be eligible to sit for the  basic perioperative TEE examination (PTEeXAM) at the conclusion of their residency. In addition, an elective international rotation is being developed with Peking University Health Science Center that will offer select CA-3 residents the opportunity to rotate on the pain management service at Peking Hospital #3 and understand how the marriage of modern Pain Management practices is melded with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

At our UMKC Anesthesiology Residency Program you will get ample exposure to all these facets of anesthesia care- including all aspects of care in the perioperative period. You will graduate from this program with clinical skills at or above any program in the country. The high acuity of illness in patients we care for will well prepare any resident in both their clinical skills and knowledge to confidently care for patients with all manners of illness. In recent years, we have had half of each class complete fellowships and half enter practice. We have had residents who have matched into cardiac anesthesia (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, University of Washington, University of Florida), pediatric anesthesia (UCLA Children’s, Barnes-Jewish at Wash U, University of Cincinnati), pediatric and adult pain management (Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Boston Children’s), pain management (Cleveland Clinic), obstetric anesthesia (Washington University), critical care medicine (Cleveland Clinic, University of Nebraska), combined cardiac/critical care (University of Florida), and combined obstetric/critical care (Mayo Clinic).

Best of luck in the Match!
Hopefully we’ll be seeing you.
