 About KU School of Medicine-Wichita

At KU School of Medicine-Wichita, our mission is to educate students, residents, and physicians through patient care, service, research, and scholarly activities to improve the health of Kansans in partnership with Kansas communities.

With Kansas in need of more physicians, the KU School of Medicine opened its Wichita campus in 1971 to provide hands-on clinical training to medical students in their third and fourth years. In 2011, the KU School of Medicine-Wichita expanded to a full, four-year campus, welcoming its first class of first-year medical students. The Wichita campus expansion was designed to help alleviate Kansas’ physician shortage.

While the majority of medical schools are tied to a hospital, our campus in Wichita is community-based thanks to more than 1,000 volunteer faculty inside three partner hospitals (Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center, Wesley Medical Center, and Via Christi Health), as well as in doctors’ offices across the state.
