UMKC’s matches reflected the school’s mission to inspire excellence and train physicians for Missouri and the Midwest.

 


UMKC School of Medicine is an innovative, six-year combined degree program. From its baccalaureate/MD curriculum to a docent system that emphasizes small group learning, the school is a trendsetter in medical education and research.


 

This year’s residencies included postings at the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Emory, Duke, Vanderbilt, Northwestern and the University of Chicago. Thirty-three of the residencies are in the Kansas City area, mainly through UMKC and its affiliate hospitals, but also at the University of Kansas. A half-dozen are in St. Louis, and four are at MU in Columbia. Besides Missouri and Kansas, students matched in 29 other states and the District of Columbia.
