Program Summaries

Missouri - Columbia
University of Missouri-Columbia Program
- Residents were really personable and helpful, seemed like a very laid back atmosphere.
- Free food in the Dr lounge
- Good moonlighting opportunities
- Very Low COL area
- Close-knit residents/approachable faculty
- Small city size (maybe a + depending on the person)
- Small program size (5 Residents/year) so call schedule sounds like it can be busy.
