Primary Care Workshop

Better understand the life of a doctor through KU School of Medicine's Primary Care Workshop. If accepted, you'll be part of a physician-led experience that illuminates some of the skills doctors use regularly.

In this one-day workshop, students will participate in a physician-led Problem-Based Learning (PBL) group that illustrates a clinical office visit and in breakout sessions that provide individualized learning about suturing and aspects of the physical exam.

Presentations throughout the day include navigating the doctor's office visit, professionalism, patient confidentiality and maximizing your shadowing experience. You'll also have the opportunity to visit with current medical students and tour the campus.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be a permanent Kansas resident or student at a Kansas college or university who has attained sophomore standing as of the date of the workshop
  • Be a permanent Kansas resident enrolled in a college or university outside of Kansas
  • Have a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade point average

Application Process

The application requirements include:

  • Completion of the application form
  • Receipt of a current transcript/s for all college work completed
  • A one-page personal statement

Students will be accepted into the Primary Care Workshop upon fulfillment of requirements and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Up to 30 students will be able to participate in each workshop.

When we resume workshops, applications for the fall, winter and summer Primary Care Workshops will be made available online.
