The Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME) at Children's Mercy is responsible for the medical student program, residency programs, fellowship programs, Continuing Medical Education (CME), Office of Faculty Development (OFD) and the Health Sciences Library. We work in collaboration through partnerships with three Kansas City-area medical schools: The Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, and the University of Kansas School of Medicine as well as institutions across the country and the world.
