Graduate Medical Education UMKC Internal Medicine Pediatric Residency

The University of Missouri-Kansas City Internal Medicine Pediatrics (Med/Peds) Residency is a strong academic program that boasts of its participants, graduates and their accomplishments. Located in the heart of the Midwest, our residency offers a quality training experience in an affordable and livable city. Our residency program is comprised of three individual hospitals that come together to provide a diverse and excellent education.

Our program provides the environment and teaching services needed for a successful experience, but our personnel make the program excellent. Our residents are hard working, intelligent and dependable; but they are also feisty, opinionated and unrelenting.

This combination results in a dynamic residency program that consistently meets the needs and desires of our individual residents.

Want a board review class? Rely on the Med/Peds residents to begin and sustain it. Want to change a clinic procedure? They will aggressively pursue the goal until it is satisfactory. Our residency family bands together to support one another as our senior residents serve as mentors to the more junior residents.

We have six outstanding Med/Peds-trained faculty dedicated to the success of our residency. They meet with the residents once a month to discuss any potential problems and ensure our faculty is meeting the needs of our residents. They facilitate a weekly clinic curriculum and attend in the weekly combined Med/Peds Clinic.

Kansas City is a great place to live and raise a family. It provides a wide spectrum of activities from the Kansas City Royals (Major League Baseball), Chiefs (National Football League) and Sporting KC (professional soccer) to the Lyric Opera and some of the best jazz you will ever hear. Our city is proud of its outdoor activities and provides walking, biking and nature trails throughout the metropolitan area. And for those with voracious appetites, the best barbeque in the world is available here.
