The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine was founded more than 30 years ago as an innovative six-year medical program. From its combined baccalaureate/doctor of medicine curriculum to a docent system that emphasizes small group learning, the UMKC School of Medicine has remained a trendsetter in medical education.
M.D. students enter the medical program and enroll in the Human Structure Function series in January and remain in the program for 48 consecutive months. Three distinct curriculum plans have been devised, which allow M.D. students to proceed through the curriculum along one of three possible tracks. Two tracks provide the M.D. students with five months of time during which they do not formally enroll. The first track allows M.D. students to elect the five-month leave of absence immediately following completion of USMLE Step 1, and the second track provides for a five-month leave of absence midway through the clinical clerkship sequence. The third track allows M.D. students to complete their 48 months of continuous enrollment in December, and does not provide any break during the program other than one month of vacation time per year of enrollment.
As part of a community-based institution, our students receive early and continuous clinical education at our hospital partners Truman Medical Centers, Saint Luke`s Hospital, Children`s Mercy Hospital, and Western Missouri Mental Health Center. Through the strengths of these partner institutions, our school continues to develop new research opportunities to further the Life Science Initiative in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
