Today is ONE DAY. ONE KU.

Jayhawk alumni and friends are coming together to support the University of Kansas during our first 24-hour giving campaign.

An exciting model for medical education

The University of Kansas School of Medicine campus in Salina was created to address the critical shortage of physicians in Kansas. This innovative medical education program is aimed at students with a strong desire to practice in rural areas.

With eight students admitted each year, the Salina campus is the smallest four-year medical education site in the country. University leaders believe it can serve as a model for the nation.

The educational environment in Salina is as high-tech as it it is intimate. Students learn with their peers on the Kansas City and Wichita campuses via interactive video and podcasts. Other training takes place in local Salina clinics, the offices of rural physicians and at the Salina Regional Health Center, which is adjacent to the school's Braddick Building.
