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
Our first event in this series of workshops designed for health care organizations in Kansas covers how to recruit and retain health care providers for your organization. This event will be held June 21 on the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita campus.

Rural Kansas Health Care Marketing Workshop
Join the RHES marketing team August 2 and 3 as we present marketing strategies for rural health care organizations. Our two-days of workshops feature different content, but are stand-alone, allowing you to choose to attend one or both days. 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 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.

This year KCO will be held in Wichita - Tuesday, Sept. 27 and in Kansas City - Wednesday, Oct. 5.

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.
