Kansas City University signs new early acceptance partnership with MSSU
Kansas City University (KCU) took another step forward in advancing health care in the Joplin community by continuing a program dedicated to insuring bright minds remain in Joplin to practice medicine and dentistry.
Inside KCU - July 2022
Dear KCU Community, I want to welcome new and returning students to our campuses as we begin this new academic year! With orientation activities in full swing this week for our College of Osteopathic Medicine Class of 2026, it’s been great to see students back in Joplin and Kansas City.
Inside KCU - June 2022
At KCU, we are proud of the many ways our campus communities embrace inclusion. A new and recent effort to expand the reach of our physician training curriculum includes the often-ignored topics such as caring for LGBTQIA+ patients, patients with HIV or substance use disorders and poverty which lead to poor access of care. KCU graduates will be uniquely prepared to improve the well-being of the communities we serve.
Inside KCU - April 2022
With the spring season upon us and returning from a restful spring break our campuses are abuzz. Over the last two weeks we held an open house for our Center for Medical Education Innovation, the construction of our College of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Center project has accelerated, the annual MO-KAN Osteopathic Conference was held on our campus for the first time, we hosted KC’s Nexus Informatics Conference, and we participated in a groundbreaking by the KC Parks Department for a redesigned intersection that will ultimately expand our campus westward.
Inside KCU - December 2021
As we prepare to celebrate the winter holidays with family and friends, what a great way for KCU to close out the year: as the 9th most impactful medical school in primary care in the country! I thank each and every one of you — our faculty, staff, students and alumni — for all you do for our university and to further our mission of “improving the well-being of the communities we serve.”
Message from the President: Welcome to the New Academic Year!
