Student Observerships

Medical Student Observerships

It is possible to arrange a half-day to a full-day observership under the supervision of a faculty member at Children's Mercy. 

Medical student observers must be enrolled at a U.S. Allopathic or Osteopathic medical school.

To arrange for an observership:

  • Students are to find a faculty physician who agrees to supervise the student and allow the student to work with them. Students can search for physicians by searching on the CMH Find-a-Doctor website

  • Once the student has found a physician whom they can observe, student must review and sign the Student Observership Agreement and the Information About CMH Brochure and obtain the required faculty signatures

  • Faculty must initiate the request and are responsible for the observership experience.

  • Students should send both documents to Lisa Kenslow at or fax to (816) 302-9959 for final approval
