KCO Recruiters greeting candidate

If you've attended a past Kansas Career Opportunities (KCO) event, you'll know it's the top spot to interact with mission focused candidates dedicated to serving our rural and underserved urban Kansas' health care needs. Don't miss your opportunity to meet resident physicians, health care job seekers, and students at Kansas' largest health care career fairs in Kansas City and Wichita. If you have any questions about KCO, or you are curious about future support and advertising opportunities, give us a call at 316-293-2649. Our KCO coordinators, Laurie and Allison, will be happy to answer your questions!

Employers who have found and hired healthcare providers they connected with during KCO earn the title of Star Community. Be our next Star Community!
