The School of Medicine has announced that Stacey Algren, M.D., clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology, will serve as the chair of the Council on Evaluation.
Algren, a 2001 graduate of the School of Medicine, begins her new role as council chair in June, 2018. The appointment is for a seven-year term that will run through 2025.
The Council on Evaluation develops and applies policies and procedures to assess the academic and professional development of medical students as they progress through the School of Medicine. Its decisions affect the careers of our students, and the Council strives to render decisions that are consistent and in the best interests of our students and the medical program.
In 2009, Algren joined the Council on Evaluation, and most recently served as the vice-chair. She also serves as associate program director for the School of Medicine’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program and maintains a busy clinical practice at Saint Luke’s Hospital on the Plaza.
After receiving her medical degree in 2001, Algren completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UMKC. She successfully completed fellowship training in pelvic surgery at Emory University. She returned to Kansas City in 2007 and joined the staff at Saint Luke’s Hospital, where she is the medical director of the Women’s Care Clinic.
The School of Medicine also recognizes the conspicuous service of Sara E. Gardner, M.D., who completed a seven-year term as Council on Evaluation chair.
