Telemedicine and Telehealth
The purpose of the University of Kansas Center for Telemedicine and Telehealth is to provide the citizens of Kansas with the best available health care while providing Kansas health professionals the best available health information and education.
With more than 20 years of experience in telemedicine and telehealth, we continue to meet these goals in the most professional, timely and convenient manner possible.

With more than a century of pioneering leadership in continuing medical education, our focus remains on progressing medical knowledge to improve practice performance, patient outcomes and interprofessional health care delivery.

Social Media for Local Communities
Utilizing social media to network with our local communities, national voices and professional organizations while promoting educational opportunities, conferences, regional facilities and research is important.
