Clinical Affiliations

In order to enhance students’ breadth and depth of experience, KU's nurse anesthesia program has secured affiliation agreements with a number of health care facilities.

Students gain most of their clinical experience at the main hospital of The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City, as well as at the KU MedWest Surgicenter in nearby Shawnee, Kansas.

In addition, students enter clinical rotations with off-site affiliates to obtain required or enhancement case experiences during their clinical residency. Each rotation lasts four weeks.

Please note: several clinical affiliate sites are outside the Kansas City metropolitan area and students are normally required to attend a number of these out-of-town affiliations while in the program.

The following chart lists the current clinical affiliate sites available to students and highlights the type of clinical experiences afforded the student at each site.
