The Integrated Resident program incorporates many of the experiences of first-year family medicine residents into the fourth year of medical school at the University of Missouri while enabling students to complete medical school requirements.

It provides students with a head start on outstanding training in primary care, while at the same time providing financial support during the last year of medical school. Although the program does not shorten the duration of training, it offers participants greater flexibility in subsequent years of their residency.

Medical School: University of Missouri
Bio: I grew up in Nevada, a small town in southwest Missouri. I moved to Columbia to attend Mizzou as an undergraduate and fell in love, not only with the town and the school, but also with my soon to be husband. I am currently attending MU’s medical school and will graduate in May 2021. I could not imagine continuing my education anywhere else. As a medical student, I’ve felt like I was where I belonged whenever I was with a member of the MU Family Medicine family. The faculty are wonderful, and the program is one of the best in the country.

I knew I wanted to practice family medicine before I was even accepted into medical school. I love caring for people of all ages, and I also love managing multiple different illnesses. Every day will be different for me as a family physician, and I love the excitement and challenge that will bring.  

In my free time, I love hiking, camping, traveling with my fiancé, exercising, and going to the dog park with our fur baby, Rizzo!

Bio: I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area before coming to MU for college. I loved being a Mizzou Tiger so much that I decided to stay here for medical school. As an integrated resident, I am drawn to family medicine because I want to be a well-rounded physician and feel confident treating a variety of needs. My special interests include women’s health, underserved populations and care for kiddos. Working with MU’s family physicians throughout medical school, I have always been impressed by their dedication and advocacy, as well as the meaningful relationships they are able to cultivate with their patients.

Columbia has become a great place to call home, and I’m excited to continue caring for patients from this wonderful community! During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, catching a Mizzou football game, and playing with my dogs. You can frequently find me in one of the local ice cream shops!

Bio: I chose family medicine because it offers me many different ways to help people of all ages with a variety of health problems. Also, being able to provide continuity of care will allow me to build strong and meaningful relationships with my patients while we work together to prevent, manage and treat disease.

St. Louis is my hometown, but after attending college in Miami, FL, I knew I belonged back in the Midwest. I specifically chose Mizzou Family Medicine because I knew I would receive top-level training here, while working with and learning from some of the kindest people I've ever met.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my wife, Maddie, and our two dogs, Riz (a wiener-pit bull mix) and Bambino (some kind of strange chihuahua mix); reading; hiking; traveling; watching stand-up comedy, MMA, and Blues hockey; and enjoying craft beer (responsibly!) with my friends.

Bio: Family medicine is my calling. I like the variety and mix of acute and chronic care. I look forward to building long-term, meaningful relationships with patients of all ages.

I was born and raised in the rural southwest corner of Missouri. I attended Missouri State University as an undergraduate before beginning medical school here at Mizzou. As a member of MU’s Rural Track program, I have had the opportunity to learn about medicine in many small Missouri communities, including Rolla, Hannibal, Sedalia, Branson, Neosho and Fulton. I love the Show Me State and am excited to continue my education here.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, Parker, and our families. I like thrift shopping, baking and photography. I am also a Star Wars fan and dressed up for the last three movie premieres.
