Family Medicine Residency

The teaching program at Capital Region has provided excellence in training and preparation of doctors for over 50 years. In 1952, Charles E. Still Osteopathic Hospital (Capital Region is the product of a merger between Still Hospital and Memorial Community Hospital), began its teaching program welcoming medical students and interns to continue on their path to becoming physicians. Today CRMC offers a family practice residency, and in 2012 it began the only integrative medicine curriculum in Missouri.

Medical students

Located in the heart of Missouri, Capital Region welcomes medical students from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and University of Health Sciences, Kansas City, Missouri, to complete their clinical rotations during their third and fourth years of medical school.

Rotations in internal medicine, surgery, emergency medicine, critical care, and family practice are just a few of the requirements of their medical school training, which can be completed here at Capital Region.


In 1988 Capital Region accepted its first family practice resident. Since then the program has offered one-on-one guidance and the opportunity to become fully integrated into the culture at Capital Region. The family practice residency is unopposed, giving residents a great deal of hands-on experience and no need to wait in line to perform procedures. The University of Missouri-Columbia is the institutional sponsor of our residency program.

The mission of our program is to train capable, compassionate family physicians in an environment of mutual respect based in real-world experiences. We reinforce values of ethical practice, community orientation, personal/professional balance and lifelong learning.

We invite you come train with us at Capital Region's Family Medicine Residency Program. Please check out our site and learn why we've earned this strong reputation.

Personalized interview day

For the 2021/2022 interview season, we anticipate continuing to offer a virtual option for resident interviews. However, we are eager to return to in-person interviews. When you arrange your interview via the ERAS website, we will accommodate an interview schedule for you to have discussions with our Residents and Directors.
