At KU School of Medicine-Wichita, we educate students, residents and physicians through patient care, service, research and scholarly activities to improve the health of Kansans in partnership with Kansas communities.

With Kansas in need of more physicians, KU School of Medicine-Wichita opened in 1971 to provide hands-on clinical training to medical students in their third and fourth years. In 2011, KU School of Medicine-Wichita expanded to a full, four-year campus, welcoming its first class of first-year medical students.

While the majority of medical schools are tied to a hospital, KU School of Medicine-Wichita is community-based thanks to more than 1,000 volunteer faculty inside three partner hospitals (Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center, Wesley Medical Center, and Ascension Via Christi) as well as in doctors' offices across the state.
