By using our talents and resources responsibly, and with a focus on life-long learning and self-care, we seek to shape our family medicine residents into knowledgeable, skilled, professional physicians capable of providing excellent family-focused care in any clinical environment.
- Educate residents on a healthy physician life-style which incorporates effective time management, stress reduction, self-care and life-long learning.
- Provide an avenue for residents to possess the scientific, socio-economic and behavioral knowledge required to provide care for complex medical conditions and comprehensive preventative care.
- Demonstrate proficiency in the ability to evaluate evolving medical knowledge and the skill to incorporate it into the care of patients
- Educate residents on the values and behaviors of professionalism in all aspects of medical training, including clinical work, educational pursuits, execution of administrative responsibilities and interaction with colleagues, staff, patients, and families.
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) sponsoring institution is the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences-Graduate Medical Education Consortium (KCU-GME Consortium). The partnership and collaboration between KCU-GME Consortium and SLDPH FM Residency is integral to the support of the resident in training. KCU-GME provides support with administrative, educational, technological, library and other support services to the residency.
