School of Medicine-Wichita
We doctor Kansas

The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita educates tomorrow’s physicians and health care leaders through community partnership, improving the health of Kansans.

Our centrally located campus opened in 1971, and to help alleviate Kansas’ physician shortage, we expanded in 2011 to become a four-year school, adding first-year students.

While the majority of medical schools are tied to a hospital, KU School of Medicine-Wichita is unique in that it’s community based. The school has a reputation for providing incredible hands-on learning opportunities for medical students, thanks to more than 1,000 paid and volunteer faculty inside three partner hospitals (Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center, Via Christi Health and Wesley Medical Center) as well as in doctors’ offices and clinics across the state.

Wichita medical school graduates stay in Wichita as well as go all over the country for their residency training. We sponsor 11 residency and fellowship training programs in partnership with Wesley Medical Center and Via Christi Health. Our residencies include Anesthesiology, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Medicine/Pediatrics, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Radiology (Diagnostic), Sports Medicine and Surgery.

In addition, KU School of Medicine-Wichita benefits the community and state by bringing clinical trials to residents, improving patient outcomes and lowering costs through research and providing care to those in need.
