UMKC School of Medicine created the Student Ombudsperson (ombud) within the Office of the Learning Environment in 2020. An ombudsperson is defined as a person who is charged with representing the interests of a group by investigating and addressing complaints of perceived maladministration or violation of rights.

The Student Ombudsperson offers confidential and anonymous support and advocacy specifically to the medical and allied health students at UMKC School of Medicine. The Ombudsperson may serve as an intermediary, mediator, facilitator, and informal information gatherer or simply as a listener. The Ombudsperson has no authority to take action but has access to anyone in the School for the purpose of informal resolution of concerns and disputes.

Many times, students don’t know whom to approach for help. The objective of the Student Ombudsperson is to address student concerns about how and when to approach existing resources (OAA, DEI, Office of Student Affairs, course directors, docents, rotation Faculty) if, or when, the student feels mistreated or has a conflict with another member of the School of Medicine community. The role of the ombudsman is to facilitate resolution of allegations by UMKC medical and allied health students, of perceived unfair, inappropriate, discriminating, unprofessional, or harassing treatment or behavior by faculty, staff, administrators, patients or fellow students.

The responsibilities of the Student Ombudsperson include:

Providing a welcoming, neutral, safe and confidential environment to talk.

Listening to concerns and complaints and discussing appropriate options.

Providing information on School of Medicine policies and practices.

Helping to evaluate options for addressing the concern.

Guiding the student towards resolving those options

Providing information about, and referring the student to, appropriate School of Medicine resources.

Educate the student on tactics to deal with microaggressions as appropriate.

Inquiring about wellness and encouraging contact with wellness resources.

While maintaining confidentiality, provide upward feedback to the administration (or others in authority) when a systemic issue or trend occurs.

The only exceptions to confidentiality are as follows: in the case of imminent risk of serious student harm as determined by the Ombudsperson; where mandated by law; and in situations of sexual misconduct/gender based harassment matters where federal law (Title IX) requires information be passed on to the main campus’ Title IX office.

The ombudsperson does not:

Take sides in disputes.

Adjudicate or participate in formal university grievances.

Determine guilt of any party in a dispute.

Provide legal advice.

Assign sanctions on individuals.

Replace any official university office, department or process..

Keep records of student complaints and/or conversation.

After being contacted, the ombudsperson will:

Offer/arrange a  mutually acceptable meeting place and time including a virtual appointment.

Assure the student that the discussion will remain confidential.

 Remind the student that no records will be kept.

Be receptive and kind.

FAQ

Q: Do I need a TB Test?

A: All AA and PA students are required to have a TB Test. We recommend all School of Medicine students stay up to date with their TB Skin test, particularly Year 4, 5, and 6 students BA/MD and MD Students. A lapse in testing results in the need for a Two-Step Test and could delay participation in various experiences.

Children’s Mercy Hospital requires an annual TB Test, so students participating in the pediatric clerkship or electives (including research) at CMH will need to have one on file.

Other hospitals may also require a TB Skin test so we recommend students starting residency in the next year or planning to participate in out of town/away rotations stay up to date.

Q: Do I need a TB Skin Test if I previously tested positive?

A: If you have tested positive for TB infection you must provide documentation of positive TB  test  results, TB treatment, and a negative two-view chest x-ray. Students must complete the program symptoms form annually. Based on results of the symptoms form additional action may be required.

An additional negative two-view chest x-ray is required within six months of the student’s first rotation at Children’s Mercy Hospital and Clinics.  CMH will let students know when this is needed.

Q: What if I am not currently in Kansas City? Do I need a flu shot and TB test?

A: Flu shots and TB skin tests are available at health departments, Minute Clinics, and occupational health centers across the US. Students should still complete these annual requirements to stay on track with immunizations. Not doing so could cause a delay in the student’s return to the clinical setting.

Q: So I’m not currently in the clinical setting. Do I need a flu shot and TB test?

A: We recommend students complete these annual requirements to stay on track with immunizations. Not doing so could cause a delay in the student’s participation in the clinical setting.

Q: I’m a Year 1 BA/MD or MD Student. Do I need a TB test?

A: No, you completed your needed TB tests before starting school.

Q: If I go to the Student Health Center’s event on the 24th and get a TB test placed, do I have to have it read at the same location on the 26th, or can it be read somewhere else?

A: We encourage you to make every effort to have it read at the same location on the 26th. Going to another location will result in the student needing to pay for the read.

Q: Do I have to wear a mask at the Student Health Center’s clinic event, even if it’s outdoors?

A: Yes, students must be masked to receive services.

Q: Am I excused from clinic or other activities to go get my TB test and/or flu shot?

A: No.

Q: Why are students responsible for sourcing and paying for flu shots and TB tests this year?

A:  Each year, we review our budget to ensure that spending is allotted to appropriate costs, while staying within the confines of the university budget (made up primarily of state allocations and tuition).  Knowing that health insurance is a requirement of all students in the SOM clinical programs and that most health insurance policies pay for an annual influenza vaccine, we felt it was appropriate to shift that cost out of the school budget so as to not pay for something that was already covered by another entity.  Additionally, TMC no longer requires a yearly TB test, reducing the necessity of obtaining this test each year for most students.

It was important to us to examine how this would impact students, and to ensure the cost of this change would be minimal.  The UMKC Student Health Center helped us achieve this goal in offering both the flu vaccine and the TB test at a price lower than vendors such as Concentra, CVS, and the KCMO Health Department.  They’ve organized a clinic specifically for our students, but are also available during their normal business hours if those clinic hours are not convenient in your schedule.

Making this change allowed us to continue our contract with WellConnect to continue to ensure that students had flexible access to mental health counseling and resources, and that cost increased this year.  WellConnect has increased their services  to us as well, and any student who needs assistance with utilizing WellConnect resources can contact Niloofar Shahmohammadi at shahmohammadin@umkc.edu.

UMKC School of Medicine Approved to Expand Program in Missouri

A new UMK School of Medicine campus in St. Joseph, in partnership with Mosaic Life Care, will increase rural health care

The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine plans to expand its program to St. Joseph, Missouri, to address the state’s rural physician shortage.

The University of Missouri System Board of Curators approved the proposal on Thursday.

UMKC received a $7 million grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to start the new program in January 2021. HRSA, the primary federal agency for improving access to health-care services for people who are uninsured, isolated or medically vulnerable, will pay out the grant over four years.

“We are thrilled we will be able to address a critical health-care need in Missouri,” said Chancellor Mauli Agrawal, Ph.D. “This will enable more patients throughout the state to get better access to high-quality medical treatment.”

The need is great in the United States – the American Association of Medical Colleges projects a shortage of nearly 122,000 physicians by 2032, with primary-care physicians making up almost half of this shortage. And the need is especially great in Missouri: the state has 250 primary-care health professional shortage areas, including 109 of its 114 counties. It ranks No. 40 among U.S. states in terms of health.

“The disparities in care in rural areas result in higher rates of death, disability and chronic disease for rural Americans. Expansion of our medical school to the northwestern region of our state will serve to bridge this gap, knowing that students training in rural programs are three times as likely to remain in practice in those areas.” – UMKC School of Medicine Dean Mary Anne Jackson

“Missouri is facing a physician shortage in the next five years, creating major challenges for rural communities,” said U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Missouri). “As chairman of the appropriations subcommittee that funds the Department of Health and Human Services, I started the Medical Student Education Program to ensure resources were specifically targeted toward improving access to care where it’s needed most. I am glad to see the University of Missouri-Kansas City focusing efforts on addressing that challenge by training more physicians to practice medicine in rural and underserved areas. This is great news for UMKC and the St. Joseph community.”

Typically, physicians remain in the areas where they go to medical school, and 80 percent of UMKC School of Medicine students are from Missouri and the surrounding counties, said Mary Anne Jackson, M.D., dean of the school. “The disparities in care in rural areas result in higher rates of death, disability and chronic disease for rural Americans. Expansion of our medical school to the northwestern region of our state will serve to bridge this gap, knowing that students training in rural programs are three times as likely to remain in practice in those areas.”

While the UMKC School of Medicine is known for its innovative six-year B.A./M.D. program that admits students directly from high school, it will offer a four-year M.D. program in St. Joseph open to students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree. This M.D. track option has been part of the school tradition since opening its doors almost 50 years ago.

“I am glad to see the University of Missouri- Kansas City focusing efforts on addressing that challenge by training more physicians to practice medicine in rural and underserved areas. This is great news for UMKC and the St. Joseph community.” – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt

The new program in St. Joseph will expand the UMKC School of Medicine M.D. program by adding 20 students in St. Joseph to each cohort of about 100 students in Kansas City, said Steven Waldman, M.D., J.D., program director and principal investigator on the grant, and vice dean and chair of Humanities at the UMKC School of Medicine. The co-investigators on the grant are Michael Wacker, Ph.D., associate dean of academic affairs, and Paula Monaghan-Nichols, Ph.D., associate dean of research administration, both from the UMKC School of Medicine. The four-year program eventually will allow the UMKC School of Medicine to train 80 additional medical students.

In addition to the grant, the expansion is possible because of a partnership with Mosaic Life Care, located in St. Joseph. Mosaic is one of the largest private rural primary-care networks in the U.S. and a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. Students will be able to learn and train in Mosaic’s rural healthcare network.

“The receipt of this federal grant, as well as the partnership, will allow the UMKC School of Medicine to expand our mission of training superlative physicians and health-care professionals to care for our most vulnerable populations,” Waldman said. “The addition of the UMKC School of Medicine’s St. Joseph campus will greatly enrich rural health-care education for our students.”

Other partners:

  • Truman Medical Centers, the primary teaching hospital for the school, has a mission dedicated to providing public health and specialty services for those with financial, health or insurance issues that limit access to care in Kansas City. Students, residents and faculty who are based at Truman in Kansas City will be able to learn and teach at Mosaic in St. Joseph and collaborate on care for patients.
  • UMKC Health Sciences District is a partnership of a dozen health-care entities including four UMKC health professions schools. This further expands the district’s reach into rural health care.
  • UMKC STAHR (Students in Training, in Academia, Health and Research) Partnership Program is committed to increasing the number of students from educationally and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are prepared to enter, persist and graduate from a UMKC health sciences degree program. STAHR serves as a mentorship resource to students.

UMKC has a successful track record of creating rural health education programs in Missouri. The UMKC School of Pharmacy includes satellite campuses at the University of Missouri in Columbia and Missouri State University in Springfield.

School of Medicine celebrates Class of 2020

Erica Sherry, 2020 graduate of the master of science of anesthesia program, is hooded by her husband in the School of Medicine’s virtual commencement ceremony.

Graduation had a slightly different look and feel because of the coronavirus pandemic, but the excitement and joy was the same. The UMKC School of Medicine honored 145 members of the Class of 2020 on May 18 with an online commencement ceremony.

School of Medicine Dean Mary Anne Jackson, M.D., joined Chancellor C. Mauli Agrawal, Ph.D., and Dana Thompson, M.D., ’91, the E. Grey Dimond, M.D., Take Wing Award recipient, in applauding the graduates.

The celebration included video clips of graduates being hooded by family and friends at home as each name was read following a congratulatory message from each individual’s docent and program director.

“It’s been inspiring to see the resilience and determined efforts of our students, faculty and staff,” Jackson said. “But our success has not been surprising because the School of Medicine has always taken a different approach.”

This class will be part of a team of health care providers involved in developing and implementing new diagnostics, therapies and vaccines going forward, she said.

“You will continue to be the heart of the health care system as we traverse the next days, weeks and years of this pandemic,” Jackson said. “Be proud and celebrate this day. We are honored to have been a part of this success.”

In her recorded message, Thompson talked about the values of learning, diversity, integrity, accountability, respect and collaboration that the school has imparted upon its more than 4,000 graduates.

“As health care professionals, all of you are also leaders,” Thompson said. “Each one of you will lead teams, policies, processes and procedures that will change health care education, research and delivery. These values have shaped each one of you for success as you start your careers at this time of unprecedented change in medicine. As the world changes, so must we. You will be called upon to shape and change the future of medicine.”

Student Personal Holiday Policy

The purpose of a holiday request is to provide you, the student, with a day away from clerkship and clinical duties to celebrate your personal holiday. It is your responsibility to ensure your request meets clerkship guidelines – not exceeding the maximum days allowed for absences, not interfering with a requirement such as orientation or a test, and not missing a valuable educational endeavor. Your request can be denied and approval overturned at any time if you do not adhere to these requirements.

  1. All students shall receive the following holidays off of rotations for 2020-2021:
    • Monday, May 25, 2020 (Memorial Day)
    • Saturday, July 4, 2020 (Independence Day)
    • Monday, September 7, 2020 (Labor Day)
    • Thursday, November 26, 2020 (Thanksgiving Day)
    • Friday, December 25, 2020 (Christmas Day)
    • Friday, January 1, 2021 (New Year’s Day)
  1. Students shall not take call and will be excused by 5:00 pm the night before each of the above holidays.
  2. Students will resume rotation duties the morning after the each of the above holidays.
  3. Each student may also receive two (2) personal days per school year (defined as May 28 through May 26).
  4. With discretion of the Clerkship Director(s) students may also request other days off in keeping with current “Clinical Excused Absence and Interview Policy”.
  5. The Student Personal Holiday Policy applies to Year 3, 4, 5, or 6 students for clinical experiences only.
  6. Students will fill out and submit the Student Personal Holiday Request Form one month prior to the start of the Block in which the requested absence occurs.
    1. Example: If your requested date is during Block 2, then the deadline to submit your Request Form is the beginning of Block 1 (May 28).
    2. This deadline also applies to dates requested during the 2nd Block of a 2-Block clerkship. For example, if your requested date falls in Block 3 during a Block 2 & 3 clerkship, the deadline to submit your Request Form is the beginning of Block 1 (May 28).
    3. Your request will be reviewed as it is submitted, so it is to your benefit to submit your request as soon as possible to insure approval. You may submit your request months in advance, and we encourage you to do so.
  7. Students will not be excused the day of a scheduled exam (subject, clerkship, etc.) or rotation orientation. NOTE: It is the student’s responsibility to make sure their holiday does not coincide with an exam or orientation day.
