The UMKC Neurology Residency Program is a categorical program that was structured to achieve our goal of producing neurologists who display excellence in patient care, education, and research. Our affiliated hospitals—Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City, University Health, and Children’s Mercy Hospital—provide a balanced exposure to the breadth of neurological diseases. Our didactic and research programs take advantage of the many resources available through UMKC and our affiliated institutions to ensure that graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to practice neurology in any setting.

Our residents benefit greatly from being in Kansas City, a vibrant, moderately sized city with a thriving arts scene, great restaurants, plentiful outdoor spaces and activities. Residents have ample opportunities to take advantage of all of the great things that the city has to offer. Our program strives to successfully balance the rigors of residency training with the importance of maintaining high levels of resident wellness.

Thank you very much for your interest in our program. I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about all that our program has to offer. You can also learn more about us by following us on Instagram: @umkcneurology.
