Learning Communities

The Medical Alumni Societies Program is pleased to announce that the program has been restructured to represent a more robust learning community for the new ACE curriculum. Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, the Societies will provide the fundamental structure for small group learning, advising and student wellness.  

The Medical Alumni Societies faculty will represent a diverse group of faculty with regard to specialty, gender, stage of career, nature and extent of teaching experience and interests within the field of medicine. The Society leadership and faculty will work amongst themselves and students as well as with School of Medicine governance bodies to achieve the School of Medicine and Society missions.  

We will be filling Director and Assistant Director positions on all campuses and invite you to review the position descriptions and application information below. The open positions include eight Society Directors (six in Kansas City, one in Salina and one in Wichita), and twenty-nine Assistant Directors (twenty-four in Kansas City, one in Salina and four in Wichita). A diagram of the Societies structure is located here.

The applications below are ONLY applicable to the KC and Salina faculty. The Wichita application is coming soon.
