Mission Statement

The Menorah Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in our Graduate Medical Education program. At HCA Midwest Health, you will receive outstanding training from our newly accredited residency programs. Our internal medicine program provides comprehensive and balanced educational training to prepare residents to deliver modern, patient-centered primary care, hospital medicine, traditional internal medicine and board certification.

For those physicians looking to pursue a specialty, our program serves as a strong foundation from which to grow.

One of the goals of our program is to impart the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to provide exceptional care in internal medicine. Residents will graduate with a clear understanding of the natural history of disease, the ability to select diagnostic tests appropriately and knowledge of best practices in providing cost-effective, evidence-based treatment.

Our goals for our internal medicine residency program:

  • Attract the finest medical students from diverse backgrounds.
  • Provide an individualized learning plan that allow residents to graduate and enter practice as competent internists.
  • Provide an educational environment that exemplifies excellence.

We invite you to learn more about our program and look forward to having you on an interview visit.

Program Details

Our program is enhanced by a training environment that includes exposure to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Menorah Medical Center, and Lee’s Summit Medical Center. Our program is dedicated to meeting the needs of the patient population we serve. Our goals and values reflect our tradition of delivering high-quality, cost-effective care for our patients and our communities.

Please note that we are still in the early stages of our program and are still in the process of enhancing our resident curriculums and rotations to be the very best. Our facilities are also in the process of preparing for the growing number of residents.

Therefore, we are not able to offer third-year medical student rotations in the Internal Medicine program this academic year. We will be interviewing in the fall once ERAS applications become available.
