Professional Education

Welcome. It’s how you’ll feel every day.

Residency and fellowship programs at Children’s Mercy Kansas City deliver more than standard training. We pride ourselves on making sure your personal goals are a priority. That you have the balance and support to do your very best for children. And that your voice is always heard.

You won’t be sitting on your hands waiting on interesting cases to come along. Here you’re part of a team that redefines what’s possible in pediatrics. Because this is a place where the wellbeing of children is what matters most.

Training doesn’t end with your formal program. Children’s Mercy also offers ways to continue your clinical education and professional growth as a faculty member with Continuing Education, the Office of Faculty Development, Library Services and the Berry Institute.
