Welcome to the UMKC School of Medicine
Founded in 1971, UMKC’s School of Medicine has always been ahead of the curve in training physicians. Our combined baccalaureate/medical degree program and our docent mentoring system have expertly prepared tomorrow’s physicians in unique and innovative ways. We have graduated more than 2,700 physicians in our 40 years of using cutting-edge methods that are now being implemented by other medical schools.
As other institutions retool and rethink their strategies, UMKC’s School of Medicine has always been at the forefront of medical education. The more time passes, the more we provide our students with the academic, personal and clinical training they need to be leading physicians in the 21st century.
Additionally, the UMKC School of Medicine offers two Masters programs, the Master of Science in Anesthesia and the Master of Science in Bioinformatics.
