Cox Family Medicine Residency hosts third-and fourth-year medical students for their family medicine rotations. It's an exceptional rotation at an unopposed residency to give you a first-hand look at family medicine and the life of a Cox Family Medicine resident. Springfield is the core site for third and fourth year rotations for MU, KCOM and KCU. While students from those schools will have the opportunity to rotate with Cox Family Medical Residency and other departments in the system, students from schools all across the country are considered for rotation spots within the residency. Audition rotations are also encouraged for fourth-year medical students during interview season September through January.
- We accept student rotations for two or four weeks in length from August to June each year. We do not host students in July.
- It's recommended to schedule your rotation six to nine months in advance as the schedule fills up quickly.
- There must be an existing agreement between the residency and the student’s medical school.
- You will work with a variety of physicians during the rotation across several settings. The rotation will consist of one week inpatient, one week OB and two weeks ambulatory clinic. You will attend morning reports, noon conferences and academic sessions with residents, along with ethics and humanities presentations.
