Patient Care

patient and medical personnel

KU Medical Center has a long-standing reputation for compassionate and state-of-the-art patient care in an academic medical center environment. Every day, our staff provides the highest-quality clinical treatment and care with a single purpose in mind: helping the patient.

Kansas City

  • Our faculty physicians provide inpatient care and serve on the staff of The University of Kansas Hospital and provide ambulatory care through the University of Kansas Physicians on our campus in Kansas City, giving our students opportunities for clinical experience and residency positions.
  • The JayDoc Free Clinic, run by students, provides important primary and preventive care services to approximately 2,000 uninsured Wyandotte County patients per year.
  • Silver City Health Center, a nonprofit clinical enterprise operated by the KU Schools of Allied Health and Nursing, offers affordable, high-quality primary care, in-depth clinical evaluation and a range of health services to English- and Spanish-speaking residents of Wyandotte and Johnson Counties.
  • KU School of Medicine residents and fellows train at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers in Kansas City, Leavenworth and Topeka, Kan. The VA helps to fund the trainees who rotate to their sites, and this affiliation offers a unique patient population to our learners.
