Choosing Still OPTI Northeast Regional Medical Center Family Medicine Residency

The Program

Our residents have the opportunity to pursue specific interests within the scope of family medicine. Those interests include Emergency Medicine, Medical Education, and Endoscopy. We have faculty with extensive backgrounds in all of these areas. Our program is fully certified by the ACGME and has ongoing accreditation. We teach an array of procedures including:

  • Endoscopy
  • Colposcopy
  • Multiple Joint and Trigger Point injections
  • Laceration repairs
  • Excisional biopsies
  • Ingrown toenail removal
  • Hemorrhoid banding
  • Foreign body removals
  • Women's health
  • Prenatal care

These are only a sampling of procedures we offer. There are multiple other procedures offered as outlined by the ACGME guidelines and residents have the opportunity to perform all of them. Residents also have the opportunity to help teach medical students which serves as a learning experience for both student and resident.

ATSU has a history of excellence in health care and we strive to uphold that tradition.

Our History

Kirksville Family Medicine is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Kirksville Missouri in Northeastern Missouri. Kirksville is a small city of around 18000 inhabitants and was founded in 1841. The city is home to AT Still University which encompasses KCOM Medical School and the Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health. Each year the medical school graduates 170 students and the dental school graduates 42 students. Also located here is Truman State University, having around 6500 students and is known nationally for its value in the education of future leaders in multiple professions.

Kirksville is the home of Osteopathic Medicine which was first revealed to the world by AT Still. In 1892 the first school of Osteopathic Medicine was opened here by Dr. Still. In a time when medical treatment often consisted of only alcohol or opium his new concept of treating the whole person including the musculoskeletal system was well received.
