RHES News and Events

Life as a Doctor in Rural Kansas Luncheon
This annual event, typically held in March, brings outstanding doctors from our rural Kansas communities to the University of Kansas Medical Center's campus to share their experiences practicing medicine, and living, in a rural community. The event is simulcast on the Wichita and Salina campuses, and lunch is provided in all three locations.

WorkSmart Workshop
Started in 2016, the first event in this series of workshops was designed for health care organizations in Kansas covers how to recruit and retain health care providers for your organization. 

Rural Kansas Health Care Marketing Workshop
Join the RHES marketing team as we present marketing strategies for rural health care organizations. We have offered one and two-day workshops that feature diverse speakers and proven strategies for both the beginner and intermediate marketing professional. The workshops are designed for individuals who work in a rural health care organization in Kansas who have minimal marketing experience and could use some ideas on how to accomplish some basic marketing strategies from print to social media and the web with small budgets and little to no staff. 

Kansas Career Opportunities (KCO)
KCO is an annual health care career fair held each fall in Wichita and Kansas City. KCO provides an opportunity for resident physicians, health care job seekers and students to network with health care employers from all across Kansas.

Representatives from more than 30 health care employers use this event to meet and begin building relationships with prospective employees. During KCO, health care employers from across Kansas recruit for current and future positions.

KCO is hosted by The University of Kansas Medical Center, Rural Health Education and Services department.

Rural Kansas Photography Contest
The Rural Kansas Photography Contest is presented by The University of Kansas Medical Center, Rural Health Education and Services. Entries can be submitted from September 1 through mid-October. The purpose is to work with Kansans across the state to produce a collection of photographic images to help promote Kansas as a great place to live, work and play.

National Rural Health Day
Join us for events in KC and Wichita as we honor America's heart and soul- our rural citizens and communities! Nearly 62 million Americans live in rural and frontier communities. Rural communities are wonderful places to live and work, but these communities also have unique healthcare needs, which is why the National Organization of State Offices of Rural sets aside the third Thursday of every November to celebrate National Rural Health Day. We will have a reception with refreshments and the finalists for the Rural Kansas Photography Contest will be on display for final voting.
