The KU Pediatrics Residency Program will no longer be recruiting medical students for its residency program. This move was made to improve the clinical and educational experiences of all pediatric residents in Kansas City by joining programs with Children's Mercy.. KU faculty and residents will partner with colleagues at Children's Mercy to recruit an outstanding group of medical students to the pediatric residency based at Children's Mercy.
Applicants interested in pediatric residency training in Kansas City are encouraged to apply to the Children's Mercy program. Information about the Children's Mercy program can be found on their website at https://www.childrensmercy.org/PediatricResidency/. The decision to merge the KU program with the Children's Mercy program supports the ultimate goal of a single residency, which will benefit everyone involved - residents, patients and the hospitals alike. The full transition will be completed in 2020. KU Pediatrics will remain at KU Medical Center and continue to serve our patients and medical students as well as the Legacy KU Pediatrics Residents as they complete their residency training at KU. Additionally, residents from the Children's Mercy program will be rotating to the KU Medical Center starting in 2018 for both inpatient and outpatient experiences.
