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.

Our College of Osteopathic Medicine provides you the education you need to become a highly competent and compassionate osteopathic physician. Our College of Biosciences offered at our Kansas City campus provides you the skills necessary for a successful and meaningful career as a research scientist and gives you the foundation to pursue doctoral programs in medicine or the life sciences.
Preparing You for the Future

Helping to address rural health needs
KCU is thrilled to be expanding into the Joplin, Mo., community. Nestled in the southwestern corner of Missouri, Joplin is home to approximately 50,000 people. However, 400,000 people live in the 40-mile radius surrounding Joplin, making the city the 4th largest metropolitan area in Missouri.
Opening our doors in 2017, KCU-Joplin will be the first new medical school in Missouri in nearly 50 years.
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.
