Residency Training Sites

Continuity Clinics: Residents have their private practice clinic in one of four family medicine clinics.

  • South Providence Family Medicine Clinic resembles a metropolitan group practice. Located minutes from University Hospital, this clinic draws most of its patients from the Columbia area. Residents learn to work in a busy suburban clinic.

  • Callaway Physicians is in Fulton, a community of 13,000 located 25 miles southeast of Columbia. This rural practice provides comprehensive and continuing health care to a large and diverse patient population. While this clinic is located in a rural community, patients and physicians have access to Callaway Community Hospital, which is located across the street from clinic.

  • Fayette Medical Clinic is in Fayette, a town of 2,800 located 30 miles northwest of Columbia. This rural practice provides a wide spectrum of family medicine services. Residents gain valuable experience in Fayette, understanding the importance of a rural clinic with no hospital in town.

  • Family Health Center is a federally funded community health center established to expand primary care services to uninsured and underinsured patients in the Columbia area. Residents provide medical and social care to this diverse set of patients, including a significant number of expectant mothers and Spanish-speaking patients.

Inpatient Training: Residents train at three area facilities.

  • University Hospital is a 274-bed hospital that offers a wide range of services, and is the only level I trauma center in Mid-Missouri. Within the hospital, our residents also work in the Emergency Department, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU), and on our Family Medicine inpatient service as well as the Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine consult services.

  • Callaway Community Hospital is a 49-bed hospital with an ER, full range of inpatient and outpatient services, and inpatient geriatric psychiatry unit. Located across the street from our Fulton clinic, Callaway Hospital provides important training opportunities to MU Family Medicine Residents.

  • MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital, a 189-bed MU Health Care hospital, is located in east Columbia. This houses the Family Birth Center where we care for patients on the obstetrics and Family Maternity Care service. It is working toward baby friendly designation, and two low-intervention birth rooms are slated to open summer 2015. We also care for pediatric patients at Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
