Dear UMKC Emergency Medicine Alumni,
Since 1973, the UMKC Emergency Medicine residency program has continued to educate and train emergency medicine physicians to provide comprehensive medical care and has fostered physician leaders in academic and community programs across this country. From this solid foundation, our current program faculty and residents continually strive to meet this high standard that has been set by our predecessors; ex traditione, exellentia.
One of our goals as a residency program is to foster our alumni connections and expand our alumni network to promote the strength and continued growth of our residency program. It’s always enjoyable to reconnect at national/state meetings or in Kansas City and we look forward to being able to connect again in person after COVID-19.
We would also like to thank the many alumni that have contributed to our didactics through guest lectures (Dr. Bob Edmonds –Evidence Based Resuscitation and Dr. Brandon Elder- Wilderness Medicine), career panels (Dr. Tom Millard, Dr. Taylor Neff, Dr. Anne Jacobsen, Dr. Brian Freeman, Dr. Jennifer von Fintel and Dr. Matt Lockwood) and Mock Oral Boards.
We would also like to thank our alumni for their continued financial donations to the residency program. The funds are used to help cover the cost of our annual emergency procedure lab for our residents as well as numerous wellness initiatives.
Thanks for reading and continued best wishes,
Amy Stubbs MD, Program Director, UMKC Truman Emergency Medicine Class of 2006
