Located in Columbia and founded in 1872, the University of Missouri School of Medicine was the first publicly supported medical school west of the Mississippi River.

Students today can take a break from their studies by checking out the unique events in Columbia, including the Roots N Blues BBQ music festival and Art in the Park, a large creative works showcase. On campus, School of Medicine students can cheer on the Missouri Tigers athletic teams, which, as the only Division I teams in the state, are a major focus of campus life.

As far as academic life, MU School of Medicine students can pursue doctorate and master’s degree programs in the basic sciences, health management, and informatics. Students who wish to combine the two types of degrees—and both medicine and science studies—can pursue the joint M.D./Ph.D. program.

The Tom and Anne Smith M.D./Ph.D. program, which is named after Columbia residents who are providing financial support for MU students who want to be physician-scientists, usually takes eight years to complete. In the first two years, students in this program do graduate lab school rotations and medical school training. In years three through five, students work on Ph.D. coursework and research; in years six through eight, they complete medical school and their dissertation.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education helps MU med students learn after graduation by hosting events and activities, such as seminars, conferences and symposiums. Graduates can also become members of both the MU Medical Alumni Organization and the Mizzou Alumni Association.
