Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship
The Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) Fellowship program is an ACGME fully accredited program. Upon successfully completing the year-long training, fellowship graduates will meet the requirements to take the Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
Online Master of Science in Academic Medicine (MS)
The University of Missouri is the first school in the nation to offer an online master’s degree program for physicians who want to teach. This degree in academic medicine (MS) provides the fundamental knowledge and skills for future academic careers. It is the only such degree in the nation to be offered 100 percent online, allowing aspiring faculty to pursue studies while maintaining their current positions and responsibilities.
Our students are usually physicians interested in academic careers. Those with other doctoral and graduate degrees who are interested in academic medicine may also benefit.

GROW Scholars Program
The Grant Writing in Outcomes Research Workshop (also known as the "GROW Scholars program") is a nine-month faculty development program focused on clinical outcomes research and health services research. Sponsored by MU’s School of Medicine along with the Department of Family and Community Medicine, this workshop has been designed to improve the infrastructure for junior clinician research by promoting interdisciplinary research and collaborations among SOM faculty members. Junior faculty members who have a strong interest in patient-centered, clinical or health services research but lack the experience to pursue this interest should apply for this new and unique research workshop.
