The Kansas City appeal

Kansas City is pretty great, if we do say so ourselves. Which we do. Sure, you’ve probably heard about our world-class barbecue. You might not know about our thriving arts scene, livable neighborhoods and friendly faces everywhere. If you’ve never been to KC, it’s time to fix that. Most people fall in love on their first visit.

Research and grants

At Children’s Mercy, residents and fellows don’t just observe research. They drive it. Across every department and subspecialty, research is one of the pillars supporting Children’s Mercy as a leading pediatric institution. It’s not a place where you come to watch over someone’s shoulder as they do the kind of work you might get to do “someday.” Our advanced, collaborative culture puts research within reach, so it can be part of your work every day. 

Advocacy programs

Go ahead, make a difference. We’ll help. Just like you, we’re passionate about pediatrics because we care about the well-being of children, our community – and building a better future. Whether you want to advance pediatrics on a global scale or work with families one on one, our advocacy programs provide the framework to take residents and fellows from inspiration to action. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We create a welcoming environment for all, both employees and patients alike.
