Our Mission

To increase access to quality health care by advancing the healthcare workforce through recruitment, retention, research, education, and partnerships.

The University of Kansas Medical Center has a strong commitment to serving Kansas. For more than 30 years, Rural Health Education and Services (RHES) provides quality, responsive services to Kansas health care organizations, health care providers, resident physicians, medical and health care students, rural and urban underserved communities, and national and statewide associations. We strategically initiate, administer, and support many programs and services to strengthen the Kansas health care workforce with one goal in mind—to increase access to quality health care for all. 

Since 1990, RHES has developed expertise in health care employee recruitment and retention, state and federal loan forgiveness and repayment options, temporary coverage, health care career fairs, professional development and workshops, employee engagement surveys, rural health care news, and marketing consultation. Our friendly and knowledgeable team is ready to help answer your questions and provide professional service.
