As the only medical school in Kansas, the School of Medicine aims to help improve the lives of all Kansas residents, whether they live in an urban area, suburb, small town or rural area. To that end, students can earn their four-year medical degrees with programs in Kansas City, Salina or Wichita. Each campus has a unique focus:

  • In Kansas City, students train at a large, urban academic medical center.
  • Wichita facilities provide a community-based medical education environment.
  • The Salina program is specifically focused on rural medicine.
