Truman Medical Center - University of Missouri at Kansas City
Truman Medical Center (TMC) is the primary teaching hospital for the University of Missouri at Kansas City, School of Medicine. TMC is a Missouri State designated Level I Trauma Center and the only hospital in downtown Kansas City, MO. The Emergency Department has about 62,000 adult patient visits per year. The residency has 11 residents per year in a 1, 2, 3 format. The ED has 48 exam rooms including 3 trauma rooms and a 7 bed urgent care area staffed by advanced practice providers. Radiology is in the ED and includes a 128 slice CT scanner.
Because our emergency medicine residents are integral to helping us provide excellent care, we focus on clinical (bedside) teaching while at the same time having a very strong didactic program. We have a “teaching resident” shift 5 days a week. The teaching resident is responsible for checking out medical students and more junior residents and taking time to focus on bedside teaching.
