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.

The Joplin Experience
The KC Experience

Helping to address health needs within our regions.

KCU is thrilled to be expanding into the Joplin, Mo.,  community.  Nestled in the  southwestern corner of  Missouri, the city of Joplin is home to approximately 50,000 people with 400,000 people living in a 40-mile radius, making the city the 4th largest metropolitan area in Missouri. With a quarter of a million people coming into the city for work or health care daily, Joplin is the medical hub in the South Central U.S.

Welcome to Kansas City, A Community That Cares

When asked, students say one of the biggest reasons they chose KCU-Kansas City was the community – among students, faculty, staff and our Northeast neighbors. 

Kansas City - home to KCU for 100 years

KCU has called Kansas City home for 100 years. Beginning as a College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1916, KCU-Kansas City has grown to include a College of Biosciences during the past decade.  Located in the heart of Kansas City, you’ll have the opportunity to give back to our neighbors through outreach efforts as well as explore the eclectic communities surrounding our beautiful campus.
