AOA certified, first and only dually accredited program in the region.UMKC/KCU Family Medicine Residency Program offers two slots per year.PGY I: Two slots PGY II: Two slots PGY III: Two slots filled by ACGME residentsThe residents are taught primarily by family physicians with the appropriate support of consultants. Autonomy and independent decision-making are fostered. The residents care for the patients as their own, rather than caring for the patients of an attending or another service. The Family Medicine faculty is the attending physicians on the medicine and obstetrical services. This provides an opportunity for residents to observe and understand the role of the family physician as the leader of the health care team.A strong obstetrical experience is one of the major attributes of this residency. Residents who want to incorporate operative obstetrics into their practice will have the opportunity to receive concentrated training in C-sections and post-partum tubal ligations. The procedure clinic allows residents the opportunity to learn and enhance their outpatient procedural skills in a setting with 1:1 faculty supervision. The family medicine colposcopy clinic performs more than 600 colposcopies and more than 100 LEEPs per year. A sports medicine clinic opened in February 2007 and is headed by the family medicine sports medicine faculty. The musculoskeletal clinic offers osteopathic residents and allopathic residents a defined manipulation clinic for training and for delivering holistic care.A modified night-float system provides the residents with the ability to make sound clinical decisions while not being fatigued. Rotations without call promote self-learning and opportunity to pursue family time and interests outside of medicine.
During the residents’ second and third academic years in the program, they are reimbursed up to $1,000 per year for CME expenses. Plus, they are also given seven days of CME for each academic year at the PGYII and PGYIII levels.
On-Site Montessori School and Day Care: One of the few Montessori programs that is fully accredited by the Missouri Department of Education as an elementary school, up to third grade. This program offers very reasonable prices with discounts for residents and employees.
