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. Over the last year, we were fortunate to catch up with several alumni at the ACEP Scientific Assembly in San Diego both at the MOCEP reception and at an impromptu dinner with residents and faculty. We hope to plan a more formal dinner in the near future.
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. Anne Jacobsen, Dr. Brian Freeman, 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 were used to help cover the cost of our annual emergency procedure lab for our residents as well as numerous wellness initiatives.
Many of you filled out our recent resident survey, Thank you for your feedback and for sharing your experiences with us, please check out the alumni updates. If you have not already, please take the time to engage with us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (@umkcEM).
Thanks for reading and continued best wishes,
Charlie Inboriboon MD, Associate Program Director
Amy Stubbs MD, Program Director, UMKC Truman Emergency Medicine Class of 2006
