House Staff Organization

The House Staff Organization (HSO) represents the concerns of all University of Missouri Health Care residents and fellows. The organization’s officers are elected at the beginning of the academic year by their peers.

The HSO encourages the representation of all departments and divisions and meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 5-6pm via zoom. Contact Stacie Connot in the GME office at 573-882-4637 for email for zoom invite.

One main goal of the committee is to deliver premier patient care. The leadership in the HSO work closely with the Office of Clinical Effectiveness and share the belief that House Staff issues are inherently connected to patient care issues.

HSO has a reputation for listening intently to ideas, concerns and acting upon these. The HSO has a very important voice, and many positive changes have occurred from this group.

The competence, efficiency and ultimate satisfaction of the House Staff has a powerful effect on the quality of care being delivered at University Hospital. Please bring all concerns and suggestions promptly to this group.
