The University of Missouri School of Medicine is an engaging, innovative, and rewarding place to work. Established more than 170 years ago as the first publicly supported medical school west of the Mississippi River, the school maintains its mission to improve the health of all people, especially Missourians, through exemplary education, research, and patient-centered care.
The medical school, along with MU Health Care, the MU Sinclair School of Nursing, and the MU School of Health Professions, create MU Health. MU Health is a robust academic health center and the only center in mid-Missouri. The University of Missouri consolidated its health care units in September 2008 to better align all of the units under the shared mission of providing patient and family-centered care, education and research to residents of Missouri and beyond.
Our more than 700 faculty physicians and scientists educate more than 1,000 medical students, residents, fellows and others seeking advanced degrees, as well as more than 1,000 undergraduate students each semester. Our researchers focus on lifesaving discoveries that address the most prevalent health problems.
