Welcome to the University Health (UH)/University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine Emergency Medicine Residency donation portal. Since 1973, the UMKC Emergency Medicine residency program has been dedicated to educating and training emergency medicine physicians to provide outstanding, compassionate medical care to our community. UMKC-EM has fostered physician leaders in national, academic, and community settings across the country. From this solid foundation, our current program faculty and residents continually strive to meet the high standard that has been set by our predecessors; ex traditione, exellentia. Thanks to your contributions to the Emergency Medicine Alumni Fund, we have been able to support numerous educational and wellness opportunities for our amazing residents and faculty. Some recent examples include:

Service Learning:

Over the past 2 years, we have incorporated community service activities into our curriculum. We believe through service, we may see our community through a different lens, helping strengthen our relationships with each other and our patients. Alumni Funds have supported some of our efforts.

Residents and faculty planted a flower and vegetable garden at the Kansas City Assessment and Triage Center, a local mental health crisis center.

Drs. Candanedo, O’Brien, and Hillman building furniture for incoming refugee families at Jewish Vocational Services; a local organization.

Curricular innovation:

We take pride in our high- quality didactics that incorporate up-to-date techniques without sacrificing content. Resources for simulation, small group learning, and non-traditional topics have all been supported by the Fund.

Drs. Hindsley, Hesson (’21), Subramanian, and Sullivan make breakfast before a special holiday didactic conference.

Drs. Tran (’19), Freeman (’17), Neff (’19), Spencer (’19), Von Fintel (’12), and Sartain (’12) share their experience and perspective on life after residency.
