Welcome from the program director

The Lee's Summit Family Medicine Residency program is a great place to continue your education and receive broad-based training that will help you reach your potential as an excellent family physician. Our mission is to develop the next generation of competent and compassionate physicians as well as physician leaders. This will be accomplished through excellence and innovation in education, clinical practice, scholarship and service, while expanding residents' perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Driven by a 'Clinic First' mentality, our program provides the best opportunities for education from the wealth of resources we have in our area, and couples them with an outstanding, energetic faculty who are dedicated to teaching our residents and fostering their growth. Residents and faculty work as a team, but also care for their own patient panels, in our outpatient office, Lee's Summit Family Medicine. At this office, we see a wide variety of patients, which enables our residents to learn about diseases and how factors — such as socioeconomic status, insurance type and ethnicity — affect patients differently. Residents are viewed as partners. We care for patients like a large group practice. We care for patients like a large group practice, and regularly review patient outcomes to ensure we are delivering quality care to all of our patients.

Our faculty members, though still a growing group, have a wide range of professional interests and expertise, including integrative and lifestyle medicine, medical nutrition, women's health, hospital medicine, and physician leadership. While our goal is to help you to be the best family physician, we also care about the individual. Our faculty are invested in our residents as people; we have a wellness curriculum integrated into our regular didactics.
