The mission of the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita is to train doctors who can improve the health of all Kansans.
All Med/Peds residents do the following:
- Complete two years of training in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, after which they are eligible for both board certification exams.
- Train in alternating blocks 4+5+4; for example, four months of IM, five months of peds then four months of IM. During the following year, that same resident will rotate four months of peds, five months of IM, and four months of peds.
- Work their way through some combination of general inpatient duties, ambulatory care, emergency medicine, and critical care.
- Develop the skills to advance from intern-level duties to the role of team supervisor and educator.
- Attend and present at a variety of scheduled didactic sessions, including morning reports, journal clubs, morbidity/mortality meetings, and noon conferences.
