Obstetrics & Gynecology

Application Information


The Obstetrics and Gynecology program of the University of Missouri-Kansas City participates in the NRMP and only accepts applicants who apply through Electronic Residency Application Service. Applications/resumes e-mailed directly to the program will not be reviewed.  UMKC does not support H1B visas but will consider J1 visa status.

The application deadline in ERAS is November 1st 2020.  Invitations for interviews will be sent on November 10th and November 17th in alignment with the APGO and CREOG revised timeline for the 2021 application cycle.  All interviews are held in November and December.  Interviews will be held in November, December and January this cycle.

The UMKC OB-GYN Residency program is committed to recruiting and training a diverse group of Women’s Health professionals. We embrace diversity in all its forms, including race, ethnicity, disability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.  See our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion tab under Residency for our commitment.

We encourage applicants with a local connection to consider including information in your personal statement.  We know residents excel when they are supported by family and friends.

While the program does not require a minimum USMLE/COMLEX requirement for consideration, we do prefer applicants who have passed their exams on the first attempt. For Osteopathic students, USMLE is not required but strongly encouraged.

Application materials must be submitted by the November 1st deadline to be considered.  We understand some Step 2 scores may be delayed.
