International Individualized Research Program

Due to the evolving nature of COVID19 and the resulting effect on our Medical Center, KUMC is deferring any observer or research learner opportunities until January 2021. We will update the website when these opportunities are open again. You may also email kconnelly@kumc.edu for individual questions about the resumption of these programs.

Requests for an International Individualized Research Program (IIRP) at the University of Kansas Medical Center must be approved by the sponsoring supervisor, Department Chair, Office of International Programs, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs and Vice Chancellor of Research. The International Individualized Research Learning Program for Internationals is overseen by the Office of International Programs (OIP). Individuals participating in this program through the Office of International Programs are non-U.S. citizens or non-U.S. permanent residents.

The IIRP is an opportunity for an individual to engage in an educational research experience for his/her own benefit including professional development. The opportunities to participate in this program are limited and require a strong endorsement from the sponsoring department. Internationals participating in the International Individualized Research Program are limited to a 4-month visit, with the possibility of one 4-month extension with a formal request to OIP and approval by the Vice Chancellor of Research.

*Please note: There are OIP administrative fees and sponsoring department fees for this program. Contact our office for the current fee schedule.
