About K-PATHS

Whether you are in high school, college or already a KU Medical Center student, there are many programs available to learn more about health care, research, science or administration. Today, many medical schools and other health care degree programs require previous work or volunteer experience in a health care setting or research lab. We offer programming for educators to strengthen their health science expertise, and for visitors to explore our campuses through in-person and virtual tours.

K-PATHS provides potential visitors a starting point for identifying and navigating the many learning opportunities that best meet their needs. Though many of these experiences are short-term, unpaid positions and occur in either clinical or laboratory settings, there are also other shadowing and internship options in other areas, too.
