The University of Kansas School of Medicine has a branch in Wichita offering opportunities for 3rd and 4th year medical students (approximately 100) to complete their medical school training in Wichita’s community-based program. Many Via Christi physicians enjoy being affiliated with UKSM-Wichita and having students rotate regularly through their practice.
