Curriculum Ambassadors – Application Now Open

The Council on Curriculum is now accepting self-nominations and applications for the 2021-2022 Student Curriculum Ambassadors.

As we continue to change and improve the Council on Curriculum, it is helpful and necessary to have student input in regards to their education here at the School of Medicine. While we have elected student representation on our council, it is imperative that we have open communication with students from all years of the curriculum in order to plan for change, assist with curriculum development, and provide assistance with communicating policies with their peers. All students, Years 1-6, are welcome to apply. Only 2 students will be selected from each class. This is a great opportunity as a student to make your voice heard and make a direct impact on the curriculum!

To be eligible, students applying must be in good academic standing, provide professional input, and commit to attending 75% of the monthly meetings. Meetings occur every 3rd Monday of the month at 12:00pm via Zoom with in-person attendance optional.

To apply: Please write a one page, double-spaced personal statement about why you would like to serve the UMKC School of Medicine and your fellow students in this position. Students will be selected and notified of their application status by Curriculum leadership during the second week of September.

Submit your personal statements to by August 30th. Questions can be directed to Ms. Megan Frasher, Manager of Medical Education, at
