Missouri has just about everything. Travel across this gateway to the Midwest and you’ll discover vast stretches of protected forests, shimmering lakes, mountain getaways, and scenic river towns, bookended by St. Louis and Kansas City. In the heart of it all lies Columbia, home of Mizzou, which is far more than just your average college town. This city has a life all of its own.

In 2019, Columbia ranked 6th on Livability’s Top 100 Places to Live for its attractive downtown, expansive parks, fun festivals, and a low unemployment rate attributable to the city’s six hospitals and multiple universities. People are happy to live here.

Become a part of what makes Columbia grand when you establish yourself as the fifth urologist of a highly-respected, physician-owned group that offers an equal-split pay structure. Ancillary opportunities and partnership are bought with time—not money.

Here you have the potential to earn $500K–$700K per year with ancillaries after a 2-year guarantee of $420K/year and $25K to get started.

The group works with two robots and a dedicated urologic surgery team, serving a 392-bed level 3 hospital with hospitalists and round-the-clock IR. Call is split 1:5.

The U.S. Department of Education credits Columbia with “more exemplary public schools per capita than any other city in the nation.” Kids here grow up exploring the safe city’s beloved parks and 55 miles of hike-and-bike trails.

Adults have fun here, too. The Stonewater Marches, a group of fantasy role-players inspired by Lord of the Rings, meets frequently in Columbia’s Peace Park. Columbians are wild about microbreweries and food trucks, and it’s easy to spend an afternoon eating your way through the city while taking in the sights of the four farmers’ markets and the wide variety of street entertainment. Cool off June through July with Missouri Symphony Orchestra’s Hot Summer Nights performance series.

We’ll be honest: Missouri does not border an ocean. But it has an impressive number of lakes, all with their own unique charm. Among them, the serpentine Lake of the Ozarks stretches across four counties, inviting people to gather along its shoreline for everything from golf, camping, boating, and scenic restaurant dining. For anyone looking to escape into nature, Missouri is the perfect vacation destination.

Besides saltwater (which contains sharks), all Missouri is missing is you. Call Kara Savvas to avoid sharks today at 512-422-2788, and send your CV to kara@urologyrecruiting.com.
