Medical Student Program

As the first line in health care, primary care providers have the opportunity to prevent serious diseases and conditions, yet many communities, particularly in rural areas, have no physicians within hundreds of miles. As more family physicians reach retirement age, the need will only increase in future years.

At KU, we are focused on reversing this alarming trend. Our Family Medical Student Education Division is one of the elite programs in the country. Our students continually impress Residency programs across the nation and feel prepared and excited as Match Day approaches. Our graduates leave us equipped with the knowledge, skillset, and confidence necessary to embark on a challenging and rewarding career in primary care. In terms of numbers of students graduated and overall percentage of medical students choosing primary care, KU is consistently in the top 5 in the nation.

We are proud of the success we have achieved thus far and of the sense of community established between students, residents, faculty, and staff.
