Physician Observerships

March 12, 2020

In order to reduce the amount of non-essential entries into our organization, effective immediately and until further notice, all observership experiences for departments are suspended. Please continue to monitor this webpage for further developments.

The mission, passion, and work of Children’s Mercy Kansas City is not limited to inside the walls of our hospitals and clinics. 

We welcome physician observers from all over the world. Clinical observerships are typically 2-4 weeks (and always under 3 months unless research is involved). We do offer discounted housing at the Diastole House ($300/week). The program fees are $500/week. 

All international observers must be practicing physicians in their home country. We welcome learners (residents and fellows) from our partner hospitals only:

  • Cuernavaca, UAEM, Hospital del Nino y Adolescente, Mexico
