Mission Statement and Aims

Mission Statement

The Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita is dedicated to developing leaders who strive toward excellence and innovation in student and resident education, research and clinical care. Our team of outstanding educators and clinicians are committed to providing high quality training environments and compassionate patient care experiences across clinical divisions. These experiences are enhanced through lasting relationships with our community partners and subspecialty volunteer faculty. The core principles of our department (integrity, discipline, compassion and purpose) drive our faculty, staff and trainees in our mission to improve the lives and communities in Wichita and throughout the state of Kansas.


The mission of KU School of Medicine-Wichita is to train doctors who can improve the health of Kansans. Our residency program functions within this context, with the goal of training well-rounded Internal Medicine physicians who can tailor their training experience around their career goals. Our rotations are designed to provide a broad clinical exposure that fully prepares residents for a career as a primary care physician, a hospitalist or a rural physician who may join a practice which requires them to function in the absence of subspecialists. Additionally, residents wishing to enter subspecialty training not only receive excellent clinical training in general Internal Medicine but also have the unique experience of working directly under the supervision of subspecialty faculty including volunteer community faculty members. Residents are given extensive support to perform the necessary scholarly activities to enter competitive subspecialty fellowship training programs across the country following graduation.
