Center for Health Insights launches new web tool for research data management

CHI logoThe School of Medicine’s Center for Health Insights (CHI) is pleased to announce the availability of REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) to enhance biomedical and health research initiatives at UMKC. REDCap is a secure web application for managing research, including observational studies, clinical trials and online surveys. The CHI and UMKC Information Technology Services implemented REDCap to provide a secure, centralized environment to document, store, manage and analyze research data. It is highly adaptable and can be customized by the research team for each project. Two pilot projects have successfully used REDCap, and it is now available to all UMKC faculty, students and staff who are participating in health and biomedical research. Attend a REDCap overview session to learn more. Two overview sessions will be held on May 14 and 20 at the School of Medicine in Theater C. Click here To register for one of these sessions and to learn more about training session options. (Use your UMKC SSO to sign in.) REDCap designer sessions begin in June.

Orthopaedic Surgery



The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery welcomes you. We hope you will find our web site helpful as you search for the best residency program suited to your needs. We take great pride in graduating highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons from our program. Our residents train at three Level I trauma centers in Kansas City and receive a broad education in all areas of orthopaedics, treating patients across a spectrum of all age groups with great cultural diversity.

Our application process is highly competitive and we encourage you to apply if you are committed to acquiring the best in orthopaedic education. As you check out our web site, be sure to click on Residents and meet those who are currently working to maintain our exemplary standards. They come from across the country, and when they leave us, they move on to equally competitive, highly-respected fellowship programs.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
