Program Director Welcome


Welcome to the UMKC Neurology Residency Program website. Our program received initial accreditation from the ACGME in early 2017, and successfully participated in the Match for the first time in 2018. We are a young program, and growing stronger by the day.

The new UMKC Neurology Residency Program is a categorical program that was structured to achieve our goal of producing neurologists who display excellence in patient care, education, and research. Our affiliated hospitals—Saint Luke’s Hospital, Truman Medical Center, Research Medical Center, and Children’s Mercy Hospital—provide a balanced exposure to the breadth of neurological diseases. Our didactic and research programs take advantage of the many resources available through UMKC and our affiliated institutions to ensure that graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to practice neurology in any setting.

Thank you for your interest in our program. I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about all that our program has to offer.
