University of Kansas School of Medicine-Salina SCOPE newsletter

Spring 2014

From the Director

W CathcartIn July 2013 we welcomed a third class of medical students to the Salina campus — the Class of 2017. It also marked the beginning of clinical clerkships for our first class of students — the Class of 2015. This summer, we will welcome eight members of the Class of 2018, bringing our campus to a full complement of 32 students. In addition to a growing student body we have added a host of new volunteer faculty members.

During the past six months, third year students have completed required clinical clerkships in family medicine, internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, ob-gyn, neurology, psychiatry, and geriatrics. I am extremely pleased by how well the Salina clinical faculty embraced the medical education process, how smoothly the clerkships operated and how well the Salina students performed on the first six months of their clerkships. read more >>

Prospective medical students visit Salina for interviews

Strong applicants to the M.D. program at the University of School of Medicine are invited for in-person interviews. For some of the students who aspire to be a part of the Class of 2018, the interviews took place in Salina.

Thirty-seven applicants interviewed at the KU School of Medicine–Salina on Dec. 2 and 3. The prospective students sat for two 30-minute interviews, learned about the curriculum and financial aid, and had lunch and a campus tour with current medical students.

An applicant who interviews in Salina does not necessarily attend the Salina campus if he or she is admitted into the M.D. program. A prospective student who prefers to attend the Kansas City or Wichita campus may interview in Salina because it is near their hometown or undergraduate institution.

“We’re interviewing for the School of Medicine admissions process,” Sandra McCurdy, associate dean of admissions, says. “The campus assignments come later.”

Still, students who interview in Salina because of the convenience are often impressed by what they see and hear. read more >>
