What our students learn and experience on their way to an M.D. at KU School of Medicine-Wichita is critical for the health and well-being of this community and our state. And you.
Why? Because we educate and train the people whose lives are dedicated to caring for and healing people in every part of our state.
Our work in Wichita began in 1971, and in 1975, our first class of students graduated. In 2011, KU School of Medicine-Wichita expanded to a full, four-year campus, welcoming its first class of first-year medical students.
For five decades, some 2,437 students from around the world have used Wichita as the launching pad for a career of service and proudly earned the honor of adding "M.D." to their names. Since the inception of Wichita Graduate Medical Education in 1988, 2,515 residents have completed their training through KU School of Medicine-Wichita.
