The Med-Peds residents are very involved in medical education, service and leadership as well as scholarship and research at the University of Missouri.

Medical Education

Our residents are involved in the medical education of other residents and medical students in both formal and informal methods. As an example, Med-Peds residents at Mizzou have given lectures, led small group discussion and have even helped write parts of the MU School of Medicine’s curriculum. In addition, several of our residents serve as preceptors for second-year medical students in the Advanced Physical Diagnosis course in the School of Medicine.

Our residents are consistently recognized by medical students, their peers, and the faculty as outstanding medical educators. Following the intern year, residents have the opportunity to attend a Residents as Teachers course to further refine their teaching role prior to becoming a senior resident.

Service and Leadership

The Med-Peds and Pediatric residents have a long tradition of working closely with Camp Hickory Hill, a local camp for children with diabetes. Through this opportunity, residents have been involved with education as well as volunteering as medical staff at the camp. Additionally, previous residents have won grants for medical outreach to underserved communities.

Many of our residents have served in an official leadership capacity in the House Staff Organization (HSO), which is the elected representation of the house staff to hospital administration. In fact, multiple Med-Peds residents have been elected as president of the HSO. Additional leadership roles have included involvement in hospital committees.

Scholarship and Research

Our residents are actively engaged in research. Many of our residents have presented at national meetings or published in academic journals. Recently, two of our residents were selected to give platform presentations at the NMPRA annual meeting.

Examples of recent scholarly activity by our residents are included below.
