Residency Programs

One of the most important steps in becoming a doctor is residency. The residency programs at St. Mary’s Medical Center provide a dynamic learning environment that emphasizes the fundamentals of patient care by developing both medical and interpersonal skills.

St. Mary’s Medical Center houses two surgery residency programs, General Surgery and Orthopaedics, that provide a supportive and collaborative environment. The programs are designed to build confidence, independence, and professionalism ensuring patients will receive the highest in quality care.

These residency programs provide hands-on learning consisting of practical doctoring skills such as ordering and interpreting tests, making diagnoses, performing surgeries, etc. Additionally, the program directors help coach and build decision-making techniques, leadership skills, and burnout prevention.

Both of St. Mary's Medical Center's five-year residency programs prepare each resident to pass the Boards and are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), sponsored by the Kansas City University Graduate Medical Education Consortium.
