Who We Are

We are working toward making KCU the most student-centered university in the nation. We are private university comprised of a College of Osteopathic Medicine and a College of Biosciences. The College of Dental Medicine opened in 2023 in Joplin, Missouri.

One School - Two Locations

Kansas City has been home to KCU for more than 100 years. Now, KCU is proud to call Joplin, Missouri a second home. 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. 


A History of Looking Forward

KCU has a long, rich history of osteopathic medicine. Founded in 1916 by George J. Conley, DO, KCU is the oldest medical school in Kansas City and the largest medical school in Missouri.
