Research Interests

Dr. Moser was appointed as Dean for the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Salina Campus on May 1, 2019. Previously, he was the Executive Director of The University of Kansas Hospital's Health Care Improvement Award focused on improving the outcomes of heart disease and stroke for rural Kansans since late 2014. This program started in thirteen NW Kansas counties in 2014 and expanded to include more than 60 counties across Kansas. The program began on improving outcomes and quality on heart attack and stroke patients but now includes other acute and chronic conditions and continues to operate as the Care Collaborative.

Dr. Moser is a Family Physician, and he attended the KU School of Pharmacy, KU School of Medicine, and completed his residency in Family Medicine at the Smoky Hill Family Practice Residency in Salina, KS. Following his training, he practiced Family Medicine for 22 years in Tribune, KS. He left rural practice in 2010 to enter academic medicine and in January 2011, Dr. Moser was appointed by Governor Brownback as the Secretary and State Health Officer for the Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment, a position he served in until December 2014 when he assumed the Executive Director position for The University of Kansas Health System, as well as associate clinical professor of public health practice with the University of Kansas School of Medicine Dept. of Population Health in Kansas City.

Teaching and Community Engagement

I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in rural and public health, clinical practice and regional healthcare development.  As Secretary and State Health Officer of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) from 2011 - 2014, I was responsible for overseeing KDHE's broad mission of protecting and improving the health and environment of all Kansans.  Prior to serving with KDHE, I was associate professor at the KUMC SOM-Wichita in the Department of Family and Community Medicine and was director of Rural Health and Outreach.

My role here is to provide leadership in developing collaborative academic public health practice efforts in state and local health departments which is critical in our work to advance public health practice in the state of Kansas.
