Why a Great Student Experience Matters
How do you produce new generations of health care professionals who will put their patients at the center of everything they do? At Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, we believe it’s a matter of leading by example. That’s why we put our students at the center of everything we do. In fact, our second century in medical education is wholly dedicated to continuously improving and investing in our students’ experience.
