Travel Warning Information

 The quality of the educational experiences and the safety of students, faculty, and staff are the first priorities of the University of Kansas Medical Center. Owing to concerns for student, faculty and staff safety, the University of Kansas Medical Center does not support international travel to locations where a U.S. State Department Travel Warning  or a CDC Travel Warning has been issued (to include all research, conferences, professional visits, for-credit educational experiences and non-credit experiential learning activities).

However, should a faculty, resident, staff or student wish to travel to an area subject to said warning and receive funding for research as a faculty, resident, staff or student; or to receive academic credit as a graduate student, he/she may petition for an exception to this policy.  

For more information on KUMC policies regarding safe travel practices and petitioning for an exception, please see the documents below.
