Preparing Physicians for Successful Practice
Graduate medical education is one of the central missions of the MU School of Medicine, and we offer training in virtually all fields of medicine. Graduate medical education (GME) focuses on the development of clinical skills and professional competencies and on the acquisition of detailed factual knowledge in a medical specialty.
MU residents and fellows practice in multiple settings over the course of their training. University Hospital and its associated clinics are the primary locations for inpatient, outpatient, continuity care and ambulatory patient-care experiences. There are other participating locations, including the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital, which is located across the street from University Hospital. Many specialties also offer experiences in non-hospital-affiliated locations, which expands the types of cases and patients with whom the residents will have contact.
Programs participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (also called the Match) for interviewing, selecting and hiring residents. All residencies are Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited. Most fellowships also use ERAS and the Match; however, there are a few fellowships that are not accredited by the ACGME and may recruit and hire through other sources. Detailed information regarding GME for a particular residency or fellowship program can be obtained by contacting the appropriate program director or coordinator.
As a resident or fellow at the University of Missouri, you have access to outstanding clinical, education and research resources throughout your training.
