The Department of Medicine offers accredited post-graduate training programs (residencies and fellowships) in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease (including subspecialties of Interventional Cardiology and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology), Critical Care Medicine, Gastroenterology, Hematology, Infectious Disease, Medical Oncology, and Pulmonary Medicine.

The Department of Medicine is involved in both basic and clinical research, but its emphasis is on clinical research directed at improving health outcomes. Two programs in particular typify that goal – the Cardiovascular Education and Outcomes Research program of the Mid-America Heart Institute of St. Luke’s Hospital and the Hicklin Office for Health Services and Public Health Outcomes Research program of UMKC centered at Truman Medical Center. These programs exemplify the Department of Medicine’s commitment to improving the health of our patients and our community through research. We are committed in particular to improving disparities of health in traditionally underserved patient populations.
