About University of Missouri- Columbia
Established in 1839, the University of Missouri was the first public university west of the Mississippi River and home to the world’s first journalism school. As well as being a flagship, land-grant institution, Mizzou is one of only 62 universities across the U.S. and Canada to be a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. Since it's inception, the School of Medicine has maintained a tradition of exemplary education, research and patient-centered care to improve the health of all people.
As a national leader in patient-based learning, year after year, this proven education model results in our students outperforming their peers on licensing exams and finding successful placement in residency programs, including our own top-ranked family medicine program. Our students have access to one of the most comprehensive health care networks in Missouri with MU Health Care’s multi-hospital enterprise that saw more than 565,000 clinic visits and 23,900 patients last year. The Rural Track Pipeline Program provides multiple opportunities for students to train in and live in rural communities across the state, and the medical school class-expansion project provides the... option for third and fourth year students to train at our new clinical campus in Springfield, Missouri.
In addition to our progressive medical education program, our basic science and translational research programs benefit from a campus-wide culture of collaboration among more than 1,000 biomedical scientists and engineers at the University of Missouri.
