About KEE

The benefits of the program range from learning about careers in health care to gaining valuable research experience.

  • This program provides observational and hands-on research opportunities or observational experiences in clinical environments.
  • You must be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or DACA recipient age 16 or older to participate in the program.
  • Minors, those less than 18 years of age, must have the permission of their parent(s) or guardian(s) to participate.
  • Background checks are required for all program participants age 18 and older.

Update on Campus Visitors

  • KEE On-Campus Research Experiences have been reinstated.

  • KEE Clinical Shadowing experiences will return to TUKHS campuses starting Monday, April 4, 2022. All interested applicants can begin submitting applications for experiences after this date. Due to the high volume of applications, applicants who are interested in shadowing with a physician or advanced practitioner will need to secure a sponsor (professional they will shadow) prior to applying for an experience. Reminder: all clinical shadowing experiences are limited to a single day experience for a maximum of 12 hours and will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Please contact Hillary Podrebarac, Clinical Shadowing Experiences Coordinator, at hpodrebarac@kumc.edu with any questions.

  • For the health and safety of our patients, staff, students, and visitors, The University of Kansas Health System requires that all KEE clinical shadow applicants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 without exception in order to participate in shadowing activities on any health system location.
  • Applicants with identified sponsors will be prioritized; matching learners and sponsors will take longer.
  • The normal 30-day lead time should be expected due to anticipated volume.
  • To meet the current and future demand, additional faculty sponsors are needed.
