See where 100 years of momentum will take you.

A history of looking forward

We welcomed our first students in 1916, which makes KCU one of the nation's founding colleges of osteopathic medicine. We’re constantly creating new programs such as the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program, an MS in biomedical science, specialized dual degrees and a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.

One School - Two Locations

Kansas City, Mo., has been home to KCU for 100 years. Throughout our history, we’ve built strong community ties, particularly in our historic northeast neighborhood. Now, KCU is proud to call Joplin, Missouri a second home.
