Faculty Publications


In the UMKC Department of Community and Family Medicine one of our program goals is to promote scholarly work for our residents, fellows and faculty. Before graduation our residents are required to do a research project, prepare a poster presentation and participate in Research Day in the spring. It is also strongly encouraged to present these projects in other venues and publish scholarly work whenever possible.
