University Physician Associates
University Physician Associates (UPA), formerly Hospital Hill Health Services Corporation, was founded in 1972 as a nonprofit corporation. UPA physicians provide the multi-specialty medical group faculty for the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. Staff doctors of this group practice contribute to the medical school's undergraduate curriculum and its residency and fellowship programs. UPA physicians conduct most of their teaching of students and residents at Truman Medical Centers. UPA provides the unique opportunity for doctors to have a full faculty experience in an academic setting, to provide patient care and to enjoy the benefits of a private employer. UPA has over 180 physicians on staff representing many different specialties. We are the largest medical group in Western Missouri. UPA administrative staff manages and directs the compensation and benefit programs and generates physician fee billings. The administrative staff also monitors healthcare legislation and analyzes its impact for the faculty group practice.
