The UMKC School of Medicine has appointed Tom G. Sullivan, M.D., associate professor of Ob/Gyn, as the new Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship Director.
Sullivan was recently selected as the Administrative Vice Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He joined the UMKC School of Medicine faculty and Truman Medical Centers and Children’s Mercy Hospital on Jan. 1, 2011.
Sullivan has consistently been named one of Kansas City’s Best Obstetricians and Gynecologists by the Kansas City Business Journal and has practiced in the Kansas City area since completing his residency training at the University of Kansas Medical Center in 1978. He was in private practice until returning to academic medicine in July of 2002 at the University of Kansas Medical Center School of Medicine, and later coming to Truman Medical Centers.
Sullivan said he has thoroughly enjoyed returning to academic medicine and teaching both medical students and residents and finds both energizing and motivating.
He still maintains an active practice as a generalist and has particular interest in Hormone Therapy, evaluation of the abnormal Pap smear and gynecologic surgery, particularly vaginal surgery.
