The Health Education Initiative
Training more doctors for Kansas
The University of Kansas School of Medicine is the only medical school in Kansas and a premier institution for training primary care and rural physicians. To meet the state’s growing need for doctors, the school in 2011 opened a new campus in Salina and expanded its Wichita campus.
Despite these efforts, Kansas still faces a crucial shortage of physicians. Meanwhile, KU’s health education facilities in Kansas City have reached capacity, meaning we can't train more doctors.
