The primary clinical institution is University of Missouri Health Care, which includes Ellis Fischel Cancer Center. Residents also rotate through the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans' Hospital, the Missouri Orthopedic Institute, and Women’s and Children’s Hospital. The emphasis in all of our teaching services is to provide a hands-on educational experience.
Residents completing our program are well-versed in all areas, providing options of either seeking employment in private practice or continuing academic training as a fellow. Residents are expected to exhibit competence not only in interpretation of examinations, but also in the performance of image guided procedures, including angiography, myelography, angioplasty, percutaneous biopsy, and drainage procedures.
We encourage research by our residents and provide an education fund that enables residents to attend national conferences and seminars. As part of the educational process, residents are required to attend departmental educational conferences twice per day. Intensive physics preparation is included during the spring months prior to the ABR Core Exam.
