University of Missouri-Kansas City - Kansas City MO AA Program Overview:
The mission of the UMKC Master of Science in Anesthesia (MSA) Program
is to educate skilled, patient-centered anesthesiologist assistants to
work within the Anesthesia Care Team. We recognize the relationship
between the need for quality anesthesia care providers and the current
workforce shortage. Our mission is to bridge that gap by implementing
rigorous educational standards within the framework of the highest moral
and ethical responsibility to the patients that we serve.
A Message from the Dean
The School of Medicine nationally accredited MSA program graduates
anesthesiologist assistants (AAs), highly educated medical professionals
licensed to work under the supervision of anesthesiologists, to provide
various anesthesia services in hospitals, surgery centers, and other
Anesthesia services are in short supply. As a public medical school, we
are pleased to offer a new education program that meets such an urgent
community need for health care services.
