Message from the Chair

jon schrage, m.d.The Department of Internal Medicine at the KU School of Medicine-Wichita is fortunate to have two large, community-based hospitals - Wesley Medical Center and Via Christi Regional Medical Center - and the Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center to support our teaching missions as our teaching partners. Reflecting the entrepreneurial spirit of Wichita, the department has forged unique relationships with community sub-specialty groups to enhance our teaching programs. Through these relationships and coupled with our outstanding full-time faculty, we are able to provide high-quality, hands-on clinical training for both medical students and resident physicians. It is my expectation that our residency training program provides the requisite skills to excel as either a primary care physician or as a strong foundation for sub-specialty fellowship training. The department is in the process of enhancing its research curriculum and research opportunities for those resident physicians wishing to pursue an academic general internist or med/peds career or who are planning to pursue sub-specialty training.
