The House Staff Officers (HSO) represent the concerns of all University of Missouri Health Care Residents and Fellows. They are elected at the beginning of the academic year by their peers. The Committee encourages the representation of all UMHC departments and divisions and meets the second Friday of each month from 12:00 to 1:00 in 1-L03, the Essentials Conference Room. Please call the GME office for confirmation at (573) 882-4637.
One main goal of the committee is to deliver premier patient care. The leadership in the HSO work closely with the Office of Clinical Effectiveness and share the belief that House Staff issues are inherently connected to patient care issues.
HSO has the reputation of listening intently to ideas, concerns and acting upon these. The committee has a very important voice and many positive changes have occurred from this group.
The competence, efficiency and ultimate satisfaction of the House Staff has a powerful effect on the quality of care being delivered at University Hospital. Please bring all concerns and suggestions promptly to this group.
